K2 Granite or Raindrop Azurite
K2 is the highest point of the Karakoram mountain range and the highest point in both Pakistan and Xinjiang. K2 became popularly known as the Savage Mountain after George Bell—a climber on the 1953 American Expedition—told reporters, "It's a savage mountain that tries to kill you." Of the five highest mountains in the world, K2 is the deadliest; approximately one person dies on the mountain for every four who reach the summit. Also occasionally known as Chhogori, or Mount Godwin-Austen, other nicknames for K2 are The King of Mountains and The Mountaineers' Mountain, as well as The Mountain of Mountains after prominent Italian climber Reinhold Messner titled his book about K2 the same.
Why all the talk about K2 mountain? Because that is exactly where the K2 stone is mined. On the Pakistan side of the mountain base is the only place that K2 granite can be found thus far. This location makes mining this stone extremely difficult resulting in it being very rare and hard to find.
A rare combination of Azurite and Granite, the K2 crystal stone vibrates with a powerful energy, which makes it an excellent stone for healing.
The K2 crystal meaning is associated with the strength and resolve that comes from feeling harmonious and balanced in all aspects of life. It’s the granite that gives K2 its powerful grounding effects, opening the doors to your sharpest intuition. Making up the foundation of earth's crust, granite helps anchor us to the earth while our spirit floats on puffy white clouds and converses with angels. With the K2 crystal stone, find your inner muse and ask your creative spirit to come out and play.
K-2 opens and unlocks our third eye and crown chakra. This stone balances our earthly experiences with our higher consciousness and connection to the universe and the heavens.
K2 Granite is the foundation of earth, but at the same time, it goes through changes, breaking down into clay and sand and over years transforming back into a granite formation. Its life cycle is a true testament to the beauty and power of Mother Nature. The grounding and transformational elements of granite blend well with the qualities of Azurite.
