Heliodor

Heliodor





Beryl, ‘the mother of gemstones’ has a yellow variety very commonly called by the name Heliodor. Beryl is a well known gemstone occurring in various colours which include- pale green to blue (Aquamarine), the intense green Emerald, the pale yellow to yellowish-orange (Heliodor) and the pale pink to salmon colour (Morganite). Beryl is also found occurring as the colourless gem variety Goshenite as well as the very rare red beryl variety bixbite.
The word ‘Heliodor’ is derived from Greek language and it means the sun and gift with reference to its colour. The fine golden beryl variety which was minted from a particular location in South West Africa was initially referred to as Heliodor in the early 20th century with an aim to gain publicity. But today Heliodor is simply another name for yellow or golden.
Heliodor is a well known gemstone being famous for its ability to make one more compassionate and sympathetic towards others. The golden beryl improves one's intuition and improves one's communicative abilities. Heliodor is assumed to help strengthen and stabilize heartbeat and to help in the treatment of stomach disorders and disorders relating to the small intestines, liver, spleen and pancreas. The traditional concept related to Heliodor is that it is a remedy for idleness and so it was greatly used by people to avoid idleness to enable them to become active in their day to day life.
Heliodor’s astrological sign is Leo

Clear Quartz Pyramids

Clear Quartz Pyramids





Pyramids can be used to house and centre an energy source, then to release it steadily and evenly.
If placed in the centre of an area that is needed for meditation, the pyramid can cleanse away negative energy and replace it with a positive flow of energy, therefor creating a clearer space for a clearer connection during any meditational practice.
For those of you who work with the earth's energies, whether it is to create a channel, for ceremonies, for prayer, using a pyramid can be of great help.
The pyramid will work to draw the needed energy given by the earth, hold it until enough power is created and a balance is found, then release it as a flow through the top of the pyramid, it will then increase until it flows throughout the pyramid.
This is also beneficial if there is a group of followers, as the flow of energy is evenly distributed from each wall of the pyramid, in time this builds an area of purified power.
If the chosen pyramid to be of use, is made from such materials that can amplify an energy source, this can greatly enhance the power held within the pyramid and that then gets released.
If the chosen pyramid to be of use, is made from such materials that can be of a specific benefit, then once again the power held within the pyramid, will create the focus of energy and then release it to where it is needed.
The Pyramid may have an ancient history, but still to this very day, even in the smallest forms can hold and transmit energy sources, they really are houses of purity and power, almost having a mind of their own.
