For meditation, you should position the stone on the front chakra (also known as third eye) between the eyebrows. This positioning also induces intelligence and psychic power. For the physical body, one should use the stone as an amulet or also place it on the third eye chakra. It helps to regulate the nervous system, brain, nose and eyes in that position. To develop good humor and communication, we suggest to put the stone on your desk, it can be in the drawer or next to the computer.
