General properties for Beryl: All beryls are heart-centred, and are calming and balancing. With this also comes a sense of analytical detachment, making them extremely helpful in stepping back from a problem in order to gain insight. Beryls have been used for thousands of years to treat injuries and diseases of the eyes, and detoxify or remove poison from the body. Some of the best known and best loved gemstones are members of the beryl species, and each have their own individual properties.
Properties for Heliodor: As with other golden minerals, heliodor is warming, bringing delight and joy, but it is more subtle than most, as it stimulates "inner" happiness that is more internal and detached, building self-confidence and allowing us to feel less dependant on others. It aids elimination of toxins, including in cases of food poisoning, and supports and treats filtre organs, such as liver, kidney, gall bladder and pancreas.
