HELIODOR - A Gift of the Sun

Heliodor's name literally translates from the Greek as a 'gift of the sun' making it a crystal of golden light. Heliodor is the yellow variety of the Beryl family, generally referring to the greenish-yellow crystal, but includes all yellow, yellow-green, light green and brown Beryl.

Heliodor invokes the celestial Golden Ray of knowledge and learning, to stimulate the higher mind and enable the brain to function more efficiently. It is a stone of true nobility and selfless leadership, and allows one to make decisions based on wisdom instead of emotion or reaction.

Yang in nature, Heliodor helps one develop aspects of the male virtues - assertiveness, self-confidence, physical and mental strength, benevolence and power. These traits serve both men and women.

Heliodor is a hope stone, alleviating irritability and nervousness, and providing relief from heavy burdens and immense pressure. It brings stability and optimism.

Heliodor has been used as a talisman to bring out honesty in others, and to regain what has been lost in terms of employment, prospects or money. It is an excellent crystal for the self-employed, or for those who struggle to balance care-giving and career.

In the workplace, Heliodor boosts drive and determination to succeed if others have worn away your enthusiasm. Carry or wear Heliodor to persuade others to back you financially or with resources.

Keep Heliodor in your home, or wear it as a gem, to increase your happiness and buoyant energy, especially in winter or if your home is dark with little natural light. It also helps you acclimate if you move to a colder part of the world, and a small piece of Heliodor allows tropical animals, fish and birds to live happier in a cold environment.

As a Golden Beryl, it increases the capacity to recall new information, and is a good study stone, especially for reluctant students. Yellow Heliodor brings the power to solidify new interests and new relationships, helping us to see things in a different light. It adds clarity, waking things up and adding zest, optimism, and meaning to one's  life and relationships.

Golden Beryl guards against psychological and emotional manipulation of others, unfriendly ghosts, and dark energies of any sort. Keep a dish of tumbled stones where the sun will shine on them to avert spookiness and to attract angelic energies. Golden Beryl is also a great naming-day or christening gift for a child as a good-fairy gem.

Heliodor strengthens the immune system. Its white/golden light may be projected onto objects contaminated by others during cold and flu season to purify them.

Heliodor is useful in the treatment of disorders of the liver, spleen, and pancreas. It is believed to aid problems with the digestive system and small intestine, bilious attacks, nausea, jaundice, diarrhea and chronic constipation.

Heliodor may benefit the heart, help in the healing of concussion or skull damage, and aid in Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and exhaustion. It is also known for warming stiff limbs or cold fingers and toes caused by cold weather or poor circulation.

Heliodor fortifies the eyes and helps with short- and long-sightedness.

Heliodor encourages a sense of hope, possibility and vitality to the emotional body. It is empowering and optimistic, and assists in learning whatever is necessary to promote change in one's reality, helping to accomplish one's dreams and goals. It is the ultimate confidence and well-being crystal, often called the sunshine stone.

Heliodor is a support stone for survivors of abuse of all kinds. It assists in taking back one's power, and lends confidence and a sense of self-trust. It helps those who avoid making decisions out of fear of doing the "wrong" thing, and increases mental fortitude in moving forward.
