Stone of Compassionate Understanding
Helios was the Titan God of the sun as well as the guardian of oaths and the bestower of the gift of sight. Legend tells us that he lived in a golden palace on the eastern ends of the earth, emerging each dawn to ‘bring about the day’ driving a chariot drawn by four winged steeds. Once he reached the land of the Hesperides (the evening) in the west, he would descend into a gold vessel which carried him back around the land to his rising place in the east.
This stone was named for Helios as the Greeks believed that the Heliodor contained the power and warmth of the sun and that it’s presence was responsible for the alternation of day into night.

Heliodor is a yellow or golden form of Beryl, it has always been linked with the sun, and even takes it’s name from that celestial body from Greek history.
Although gem quality specimens are found, more often than not most Heliodor has inclusion of fine slender tubes, which makes it not as attractive a stone in the precious gem market.
It is often found associated with Aquamarine in granitic pegmatites. The finest quality of gemstones are found in the Urals of Russia. Often Heliodor from Brazil is a pale yellow and a step cut is used to give the color more depth. Specimens from Madagascar are a finer color. It can also be found in the Ukraine, Namibia, and in the USA as well.

Heliodor is a comforting stone, it assists one in empathizing with others and to feel comfortable doing so. It is a high energy stone, resonating with the pituitary glands, and aids in spiritual and psychic development.
It is a wonderful stone to wear if one is having difficulty understanding the problems of a close friend or family member. By holding the stone in one’s hand while in the presence of this person, once empathic abilities will grow and one maybe more apt to feel the other person’s emotional needs, and better understand what is upsetting or troubling them.
To prevent chording from this person to one’s aura, one must also wear or hold a piece of redJasper as well. Later ground the power and oneself with clear quartz or one of the stones associated with the Earth element.
Psychologically, Heliodor bring equilibrium to the wearer and give them courage for life and living. It promises the wearer charisma and personality. It can stimulate the mind and promote a clear head, especially in negotiations and mentally demanding work.

It has a stimulating effect on the vegetative nervous system and a particularly beneficial effect in the area of the solar plexus as this is often where the fretting comes from.
It is known to counteract the over-reactions and hyperactivity of the body in general; nervous tics, a tapping finger, a bouncing leg….. Heliodor water eases stiff muscles and muscle cramps.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Magical Gemstone Properties”][vc_column_text]

Beryl has been worn to prevent fascination, or what would today be called deliberate psychic manipulation, such as practiced by evangelists, crooked salespersons and politicians. This is also called being tagged or corded, when an individual attaches an astral line to your astral body, generally through the solar plexus (3rd) chakra. Through this cord they may be able to drain your energy and even manipulate your actions if they possess enough strength.
If this happens, tape a small piece of tumbled Beryl over the navel and leave in place for as long as it takes to break the cording, generally a full 24 hours.
Keep a Heliodor on your altar or with your meditation equipment to aid in the development of your psychic powers and spiritual communications.
