Additional Information

Oligoclase connects the Crown Chakra with the Solar Plexus, and then strengthens the spiritual body from within. It shields and protects without "heaviness", and gives us a feeling of inner strength and solidity. It helps us to contain our energy, and in the case of those that "give their energy away", it reflects it back into the body through each Chakra. Oligoclase gives a sense of inner expansion. It is balancing, especially with male-female energy, and because of its shielding qualities, can be helpful in treating abdominal problems such as IBS. On a mental level, it represents justice, and can be useful in resolving problems in which we feel we are being unfairly treated, as well as ensuring we are treating others fairly. Oligoclase should be worn on or carried near the body.
