Additional Information

Cerussite is a lead crystal, and unusually heavy. Because of this, it is used by many as a grounding stone. However, it has a strong connection with both the Crown and Upper Crown Chakras, clearing them and bringing pure light into the body. It allows one to create a channel to spirit while keeping your feet on the ground. It aligns the nervous system and leaves the body open to be healed.
