Apophyllite is associated primarily with the third eye and crown chakras.
Natural Apophyllite pyramids are the most powerful formation of the energy stimulating crystals, focusing energy intensely as it works with us. They have been used in gem elixirs to bring energy to the heart chakra, as well as to charge or preserve objects. Used on the third eye this is the most powerful form to stimulate third eye vision. This highly focused power can be very helpful or can at times feel overwhelming, so using a pyramid formation is only sometimes the best choice for a particular use.

More on Apophyllite from my personal perspective
Apophyllite is a stone I value most for it spiritual connection. Whether using a single natural pyramid point or a cluster, I find they give me a direction. The pyramids feel more focused in the way they use energy. The clusters feel more organic. So for a directed focus on a particular meditative question or search, I use a pyramid. For an opening meditation where I request Spirit to come and show me from its plane what I need, the cluster is my choice. Truly either will work in these ways, but I find they prefer to work in their own best spheres of influence.
