Libyan Glass is most soothing. It brings a smooth watery flow of energy throughout the physical, mental, and emotional bodies, and assists flow into other dimensions. It has a gentle connection with the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, so may be helpful in treating stomach and digestive complaints, as well as improving general energy levels. Some experts ascribe qualities to Libyan Glass usually associated with powerful Sacral Chakra crystals, with alignment to the element Fire (some examples are more golden than the typical creamy yellow specimens which may explain this association).
