Herderite has come at a time when an extremely powerful tool for the evolution of human beings was needed. While many stones until now have worked on the physical level (third dimension) as well as the spiritual, Herderite's purpose is to aid in making a physical shift to the higher planes (fourth and fifth dimensions). It is here to assist us in raising the physical vibration of the body. It is particularly active on the brain (physical) and mind (energetic) levels of the body. Herderite has surfaced at this time to aid humanity in the evolution of the brain. As the stone is used in meditation, the brain is subtly altered, allowing new connections to be made and increasing the amount of brain capacity used. Because of it's effect on the brain it naturally stimulates psychic capacities and enhances your ability to consciously process energetic information. It has a particularly strong effect on the third-eye and crown because it is so stimulating to these brain areas and fulfills the role of an Ascension Crystal so very well.
