Sulphur has a negative electrical charge that is extremely useful for absorbing negative energies, emanations, and emotions. Placed in the environment, it absorbs negativity of any kind and removes barriers to progress. Volcanically produced, this is an excellent stone for anything that erupts: feelings, violence, skin conditions, and fevers. It can also be useful for bringing latent psychic abilities to the surface. Psychologically, Sulphur ameliorates willfulness and aids in identifying negative traits within the personality. It reaches the rebellious, stubborn, or obstreperous part of a personality that willfully disobeys instructions and tends automatically to do the opposite of whatever is suggested, especially when this is “for your own good.” Sulphur softens this position and assists the recognition of the effect, opening the way to conscious change. Mentally, Sulphur blocks repetitive and distracting thought patterns. Inspiring the imagination, it aids reasoning and grounds thought processes in the practical here and now. Physically, Sulphur is helpful in reenergizing after exhaustion or serious illness and can enhance creativity. Sulphur is toxic and should not be taken internally. The gem elixir is best made with the crystalline form by the indirect method and applied externally only.
