Aligns with the Solar Plexus; Crown Chakra
Properties: Herderite stimulates and energises the Solar Plexus, and radiates a powerful pulse of light and energy throughout the body from that area. It can be balancing on both an emotional and spiritual level, and will affect each individual Chakra if held within its field, especially if held like a flat disc against the body. Although it possesses a powerful energy, there is still a sense of calm and stillness within when working with it. In this way it grounds spiritual energy and can be an effective aid in meditation and mediumship. When working with a cluster, the energy is even stronger, and can feel almost as though tiny fireworks of light explode in the body from each individual crystal.
