Forcing the user to take a deep look into their soul, Epidote promotes personal responsibility and the introspective perception. Stripping away built up barriers like self-pity and victimhood, this stone enables the user to take a step back and approach goals realistically. Fear, resistance, and anxiety stand in the way of spiritual growth, and this stone is said to help dispel those negative qualities. The name Epidote is derived from the Greek word “epi” and “donal”, meaning “addition”. This is attributed to the asymmetrical nature of the stone, with one side often larger than the other.
