The term "mica" is so familiar to the general public that it is often considered a mineral in itself. Of course it is actually a group of minerals and most people who are knowledgeable about minerals know the three most common mica minerals: muscovite, fuchsite, and lepidolite.
Mica grows by building up see-through paper-thin layers upon layers, which appear opaque but are in fact transparent. Mica is very metallic (containing very reactive element metals such as Potassium and Lithium, as well as Aluminum and Silica) and can be cold to touch.
"Mica helps us focus on what is important, stripping away distractions like layers of an onion until all that is left is what really matters. It helps bring in new psychic abilities in a smooth and controllable fashion. Mica often companions high-energy crystals such as Tourmalines, Aquamarines and Topaz. It acts as a protective interface so one does not become overwhelmed by the sheer energy of the higher vibrational crystals it grows with." - crystal-information.com
