Hematite is a metamorphic mineral that balances the yin/yang energies, both the strength of the masculine and the ethereal essence of the feminine. It is usually identified by its high silver sheen.
Hematite is excellent in bridging the essence of spirit directly into earth’s denser frequencies. It stimulates the power of any innate, unseen creative energy. It can be used to strengthen the blood and circulatory system. Women can use Hematite during their menses to assist in promoting an easy flow. Useful for any blood ailment, it is especially helpful in strengthening the bloodstream from pollution and toxicity.
It will strengthen whatever chakra center it’s placed upon and it will connect the spirit into the physical body. Use it for grounding the light body into the soles of your feet. It can also build a reflector shield during times of psychic or physical attacks. Hematite will help you to realize that the only limitations in your life are those you set upon yourself.
Herkimer Diamond is a generic name for an 18 faceted (6 sides) double-terminated quartz crystal discovered in and around Herkimer County, New York. Mined in the Mohawk River Valley since the late 18th century, are slowly reaching a diminishing amount, but can be found in abundance in Tibet and Afghanistan. Amethyst Herkimer Diamonds have been found in Tanzania and Mexico; Herkimers with Rutile or Goethite have been found in Oaxaca, Mexico.
True Herkimer Diamonds are not actual diamonds, but are known for their extreme clarity. They can also be found cloudy, smoky or even containing a variety of rare impurities. Impurities (rare and general) can include clusters, scepters, enhydro (containing fluid inclusions), phantoms and bridge crystals.
While the Herkimer Diamond has all the attributes of any clear quartz crystal, it is known as an “attunement stone;” you can use it to attune with another person or a particular environment.
The Herkimer Diamond is helpful for relieving tensions and physical stress. It has a soft and gentle energy that allows you to tap into yourself. The “you” that is larger than your daily self: your Higher-Self… your Inner-Self.
Working with a Herkimer also gives you the distinct insight of how to start a project, start over, or discover a solution previously hidden from sight. It can also be used to attune yourself with a new client or situation by getting in touch with its energy before you start something new. Having a personal large Herkimer cluster in your home or office that is in attunement with a smaller pendant or pocket-piece will keep the program of attunement, healing, or relationship continually in action.
The Herkimer Diamond will assist you in clearing the memory of fears and repressions from the past. You can create a very powerful crystal grid using four, six, eight, eleven or twelve Rose Quartz [tumbled, rough, or gallets] with one major center Herkimer Diamond or interspersed smaller Herkimers [four, eight, eleven or twelve]. One excellent grid is one of imprinting thoughts of love into a Herkimer cluster to infuse a personal environment with well-being or to grid the earth with love.

Indicolite, or Blue Tourmaline, is a rare color in the tourmaline family group. Ranging from a deep blue to a deep blue with a slight aqua tinge, it is mainly used to help in the development of psychic gifts, prophecy and spirit communication. Indicolite activates both the Third Eye, or 6th, Chakras and the Throat, or 5th, Chakras. This duel relationship helps support the communication of psychic impressions (6th) by creating a truthful, graceful expression of your insights and psychic impressions or feelings. It can assist you in quieting the ego based mind chatter while trying to meditate. Indicolite can be indispensable in uniting the Higher Realms with your spiritual nature.
It may also be used as a personal tool of integration while assistance someone in the process of crossing over. Use it in meditation to open the doors of Divine Intervention and the Higher Dimensional Realms. When used in this way, remember to use your Black Tourmaline to ground in the experience and to ground yourself after this type of meditative astral travel work.
A more readily available crystal is Indicolite in Quartz, sometimes called Blue Phantomed Quartz. It has the same energy as Indicolite, but also holds the dynamic properties of Quartz and the ability to program the crystal for what you need. You can use Indicolite in Quartz for opening the emotional aspect of each chakra to help fully release any old emotional overlays or ancestral residue attachments. It is particularly useful when working with incest survivors to release the overlays of shame and self-hatred. Indicolite in Quartz activates higher awareness, both of the healer and the client, so that the emotional causes of illness and dis-ease may be instinctively known at the root cause.
Using this bright healing tool, and its blue striated color frequency, brings the healer more in alignment with the healing energies of the blue Tibetan Medicine Buddha and Krishna.

Kyanite is a dark blue, striated mineral with occasional colorless or light blue, green or pink inclusions. It is found mainly in Brazil but also Switzerland, India and parts of the USA. Kyanite is a blue aluminosilicate mineral, usually found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. When found in metamorphic rocks it generally indicates growth during high internal pressures. It most commonly grows in quartz formations.
Because Kyanite grows in striations, this stone successfully carries electrical impulses through its core (much like telephone lines). It is highly successful in transmitting these electrical impulses through the human nervous system and the brain cells. It easily identifies the similarities of it’s growth patterns and the linear nervous system and acts in accordance with these patterns. It helps realign the matrix along these pathways for original blueprint configurations.
Kyanite’s job is especially important as you alter your dimensionality into Fifth dimension and beyond. As it connects the light body with the causal plain it reawakens the energetic impulses of the Causal Chakra for clearer insight and communication with other dimensions. Use this stone for inter-species communications and for inter-dimensional dialogues. Kyanite assists in reminding you who you really are. This stone will help you to Remember.
Use Kyanite with Phenacite to strengthen higher consciousness and the ascension process. This combination will enhance the Third Eye/Crown Chakra connection as it stimulates the communication skills of physical with spiritual beings. These two will open the doorway to inner planetary vehicular for intergalactic travel, shamanic journeying, and a greater understanding of sacred geometric forms.
