Green But Also Red
Variant of Beryl
Chrysoberyl is typically a yellow or green stone that is a variation of beryl. It is usually transparent, and some forms can be seen as green in natural lighting and red in artificial lighting, making this a rather unique stone. There are several different variations of Chrysoberyl, and depending on which one you purchase, it could be expensive. Chrysoberyl is typically found in locations such as Brazil, Australia, Canada, and Russia, to name a few. Many speculate that Chrysoberyl represents new beginnings and can help aid in the exploration of the self.
1. Spirituality and Emotional Healing
Chrysoberyl is a highly spiritual stone, activating the solar plexus and crown chakras when used in meditation or crystal healing. It can help to increase your spirituality as well as creativity in certain endeavors. It can also help to bring compassion and confidence into your everyday life. Strategically, Chrysoberyl can help you to weigh both sides of a situation before making impulsive decisions and encourages you to practice forgiveness in your everyday life.
2. Physical Healing
There is not too much information about the aspects of physical healing for Chrysoberyl, but it has been known to help identify the cause of disease in the body, making it an ideal choice to use in crystal healing. Healers will typically use Chrysoberyl in combination with other stones that may shed light on any health issues. Additionally, Chrysoberyl can help to lower cholesterol, and aid in the balance and healing of the chest and liver.
Chrysoberyl also has many unique forms that serve specific purposes for crystal healing. Alexandrite is a variation of Chrysoberyl that works to balance all areas of your life, including the psychological, emotional, and spiritual endeavors. It acts to enhance and strengthen your self-respect, self-esteem, and builds a strong will. It can also enhance your creativity, inspiring you with more active imagination and dreams. Physically, it has been though that Alexandrite specifically could help with the treatment of leukemia as well as regeneration of the nervous system. The detoxifying ability of this stone makes it ideal to be used in healing the liver, spleen, and pancreas.
4. Cat's Eye
Another variation of Chrysoberyl, Cat's eye is a stone of magic. It helps to strengthen intuition, and can also be used as a form of protection against negative energies. Some say Cat's eye is a good luck charm, bringing positivity, health, and happiness to those that use it. Physically, it can help to relieve tension, especially in the head or facial areas.
A Lucky Stone
Cymophane, which is a sub-form of Cat's Eye, is another stone that can help to strengthen the mind, body, and spirit. It works to stabilize the mind while also opening you up to new ideas and new experiences. In addition, Cymophane is said to be good to use in regards to love because it supports the idea of unconditional love in those that use it.
Chrysoberyl is such an interesting crystal because of the fact that there are so many variations and sub-variations of this stone. No matter what type of Chrysoberyl you intend on using in crystal healing or meditation, you will most certainly gain some spiritual healing as well as building a better sense of self when used properly. All of the benefits of this stone make it a perfectly suitable crystal to use when focusing on the solar plexus and crown chakras in meditation.
I certify that I am not a doctor and none of these ideas should be used to treat conditions alone. It is recommended that you always seek the help and advice of a medical doctor if you are dealing with medical issues. Crystal healing is beneficial, but should not be used as a replacement for any kind of treatment you are receiving from a doctor.
