Zeolites are known for their cleansing qualities, connection with Source, and ability to bring light into their immediate environment.
The pale yellow variety of Stellerite from Mali immediately links with the Solar Plexus, cleansing, clearing and activating that chakra, before spreading its qualities to the chakras immediately above and below, acting as a medium for general balancing, and conversion and transfer of energy, between neighbouring chakras. This effect will eventually spread throughout the energy body, clearing stagnation, leaving the user feeling more alert and clear-headed, and, physically, helping the systems of the body to work together more smoothly and cohesively.
Stellerite can also create and interchange between neighbouring dimensions, so can be used for interdimensional work and travel.
