I had brought a small Merlinite tumble stone a few years ago for my collection, but I'd never got around to working with it; then recently I was in my local crystal shop and a stunning black and white oval shaped stone caught my eye. I had to have it and was pleased to find that it was Merlinite and not a ridiculous price either for its size Wink
Before I look up the properties of a new stone, I cleanse it and meditate while holding it in my left (non-dominant) hand, to see what its energy feels like. I had the strangest sensation of prickling in my crown and third eye when I meditated with the Merlinite, I also got the sense that someone was standing behind me watching, which intrigued me more than anything, so I wasn't surprised at all when I looked up merlinite's properties.
