Astrophyllite forms star-shaped aggregates, which also gave this stone its name. The name astrophyllite comes from Greek, composed of two words: astron, which means "star", and phyllon, which means "leaf." Astrophyllite is found in shades of golden yellow, bronze or even copper. Really unique pieces sometimes have a flash of blue in them. Astrophyllite is an incredibly beautiful stone in its raw state, because its needles reflect light and astrophyllite literally glitters with flashes of copper or bronze. Its needles create a beautiful ornamental contrast with the light ground in which they are located. Astrophyllite is indeed a very decorative stone, which is why it is so popular especially in the production of jewelry, where it is used mainly in the raw state.
