The Crystal of the Day for Friday 22 November 2013 is Chrysoprase which corresponds to Venus, Friday’s planet and is a lovely apple-green colour. Chrysoprase helps to make conscious what was unconscious. It strengthens the workings of insight and the higher consciousness. It encourages hope and joy, helps clarify problems, has been used as a cure for restlessness, and protection on sea voyages.
Chrysoprase is used to speed the healing of any wound. It should not be placed on the body, but held over the affected area. Carry a Chrysoprase in a pocket to help heal. Also keep a Chrysoprase close to your bed at night to speed healing.
Chrysoprase is used as a shield or protector from negative energy. A small bowl of Chrysoprase kept by the front entrance of the home is a very wise procedure. If used in jewelry, Chrysoprase should only be set in silver and has more power carved in the shape of a heart.
