From Siri - Each area that produces Melanites is different energy, and the crystals work differently, too. Melanite from Mexico is slow and earthy, very healing for the physical body. The Melanite from Russia is absolutely the most powerful. It combines the earthiness of the Melanites from Mexico with the height and high intense vibration of the Melanites from California. The Melanites from California are pure high energy that shoots right into the head and works more on the ethereal level. These crystals have strong Titanium energy and heal more the emotional and mental causes for disease, more so than the physical. However, healing still occurs in the physical body with the Melanites from California.
