Bixbite has a vibration that is quite powerful, as it brings together the heart chakra energy with that of the base chakra. Its energy may help you to feel more energized.
It may be beneficial to help you to recover from a long illness, and it has crystal properties that may assist you to release stress and help you to have improved self esteem.
It may be especially helpful if you have manifested your illness because you do not sufficiently love yourself.
Holding it can bring through memories of the issues that have caused your illness, and this may enable you to free yourself of the reason for many of the problems in your life.
Bixbite is the name for the raspberry red variety of Beryl stone and in some places it is known as Red Emerald. It is a very rare, so I am grateful that this piece came to me.
The piece shown here is of course not gem quality stone and has only a small piece of bright red stone in the center.
The red color in Red Beryl comes from the presence of the mineral manganese.
Gem quality stones form as gorgeous transparent or translucent hexagonal shaped crystals with an occasional piece having striations on the side.
While Red Beryl has been previously found in other locations it now only comes from Utah in the USA. Gem quality stone is now very expensive to buy due to its rarity.
Bixbite is said to open and energize the base or root chakra. This energy boost at the root chakra can stimulate the commencement of the arousal of the kundalini.
These stones have a lovely heart based energy which brings through feelings of unconditional love and respect, and may help to boost confidence and self esteem.
These stones are said to help those who are in co-dependent relationships. They are known for their action to stimulate a greater depth of intimacy in close personal relationships via their strong vibration within the base chakra.
The darker Red Beryl may also assist you in a number of other ways. It is known to have some useful healing attributes, including helping health issues relates to the heart, the lungs and the digestion.
These stones may assist with the release of stress and they may are helpful if you are tired or weary, as they can aid you to feel more energized.
These stones may stimulate a love of self, and this may be
particularly important if you have an illness that you have had for a
long time, that you self manifested from lack of love for yourself.
This stone is one of the less well known stones to aid the raising of the kundalini. Please read more about this process before going ahead and doing it.

All of the members of the Beryl family work well in combination with each other. The main members of this group are Emerald, Morganite also known as Pink Emerald, Heliodor, Aquamarine or Goshenite, the Clear Beryl.

Specific stones that can help you includes Tigers Eye, Carnelian, Vanadinite, Zircon or Sunstone.
This stone has a good action to assist you to deal with stress or anxiety. If you wish to strengthen the energy by adding in other stones that help stress, there are a number that might be good choices to use with it.

There are a number of other crystals that also work well to ease stress and anxiety such as White Scolecite, Aquamarine, Amazonite, Blue Chalcedony, Eucryptite and Kunzite.
