Additional Information

Hureaulite is beautiful to work with, but should be used with caution. It is a powerful awakener of Kundalini energy, energising the body from the Base Chakra up, filling it with waves of hot, golden light. It aids inner expansion, strengthens and 'lights up' all the Chakras, warms the body, and stimulates the libido. Enjoy!
