Limonite is the generic name for iron oxide and the name derives from the Greek leimons, meaning ‘boggy meadow’. Its association with water led to it being a treatment for dehydration but it is excellent for removing oneself from the mire. A grounding and protective stone that stabilizes life, Limonite stimulate inner strength, particularly under extreme conditions. It affords the physical body protection during metaphysical activities, defends against mental influence or attack, enhances telepathy, and ameliorates confusion and psychic overwhelm.
Limonite is not a true mineral but a mixture of similar hydrated iron oxide minerals. Most of limonite is made up of Goethite. Massive Goethite and Limonite can be indistinguishable. Limonite forms mostly in or near oxidized iron and other metal ore deposits, and as sedimentary beds. Limonite has been known to pseudomorph other minerals such as pyrite, meaning it replaces a crystal of pyrite with limonite but keeps the shape of the pyrite crystal.
