The stone supports willpower, clarifies confusion, removes pointless obstacles and frees you from beliefs and unnecessary agreements forced upon you. A suitable stone for truth-seekers, as it supports sincerity and honesty and lets you talk openly about everything and inquire into the reasons that keep you from reaching truth.
