Citrine is a beautiful yellow crystal in the quartz family and is thought to carry the energy of the Sun. It is sometimes called "the merchant's stone" or "shop keepers stone" as it is said to bring good fortune & abundance for businesses. It is one of the only 2 crystals in the mineral kingdom that is thought to not need cleansing as it does not collect any energy. This stone is primarily associated with the solar plexus chakra (energy center in the body) & is useful for balancing yin-yang energy + helping one access their personal power.
This particular piece comes from a gorgeous collection of stones found in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The mine opened in October of 2016, they thought they would be finding amethyst but instead found these incredibly uniquely colored citrine & smokey citrine! Analysis revealed the color is due to the citrine growing in a layer of earth where gamma radiation is present, combined with more heat & pressure it created these gorgeous yellow/green tones in this batch.
This beautiful wand features its natural base, it is the perfect size for holding in your hand, laying on your chest, or resting on your journal or altar. This one is extra special as it is Smokey Citrine - featuring dark wispy clouds with almost stripes of yellow, it glows like honey in the sunshine. It weighs 7.8 oz and measures a little more than 4.5 inches from base to tip and 1.5 inches wide.
