This stone has a lovely energy that reminds you that you can enjoy life, that its okay to have fun. The black spots of amphiobole within it bring through an energy that encourages positive attitudes, good luck and happiness, irrespective of the conditions of your life. It reduces any sense of discouragement and helps you to release the things you have outgrown, while simultaneously making you feel more enheartened. Dalmatian stone will inspire faith and devotion towards others, especially those that you have close relationships with. It gives you stamina to do what needs to be done, and helps you to take it easy when you are free to do so. It is an excellent stone to assist you to sleep well, free from nightmares. This is because the spots of Black Tourmaline in the stone will suck up any negativity or disharmony that it finds in the surroundings.
Dalmatian stone is a quite common stone so it is easy to obtain. The meaning of this stone's name goes back to the when it was first discovered. The miners noticed its resemblance to the way the Dalmatian dogs coat looked, so they simply named it to make it easier for the average person to remember its name. These stones are easy to dye, so lately there have been Blue Dalmatian stones on the market, which are the white and black ones that have been dyed blue and even sometimes green. While some call it a Jasper, it not a Jasper but an Igneous rock. Under x-ray diffraction, a laboratory analysis that identifies minerals with a crystalline structure, determined that the black material is the mineral arfvedsonite, an amphibole similar to hornblende, with a composition of Na3(Fe,Mg)4FeSi8O22(F,OH)2. The white material is a mixture of the mineral albite, a plagioclase feldspar with a composition of Na(AlSi3O8), and lesser amounts of quartz (SiO2). Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of quartz but the composition of Dalmatian Stone is a mixture of minerals and therefore it is a rock. The types of minerals in the rock are those that crystallize from a melt. So, instead of being a jasper, Dalmatian Stone is an igneous rock.

While many stores do not disclose treatments done to certain types of minerals after they are mined, we disclose all treatments in our listing descriptions. If the product listing does not say it was treated then it is a 100% natural rock just as it came out of the ground. Treatments are not always something to shy away from as some do. Many treatments simply reproduce the exact same process that mother nature uses and/or cleans the specimen so it may be enjoyed.
