Citrine is a beautiful 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! 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 this gorgeous yellow/green tone.
This point has two smokey phantoms, one at the top and one at the bottom.The intrusions of oxides present during the growth cycle is what produced the beautiful smokey phantom patterns. This phantom appears as if another crystal soft smokey crystal is growing inside of it.
It weighs just over 3.5 oz and measures 4 inches long x 1 inch wide. Please note that there is the tiniest of chips on the point, i tried to capture with photos but it is incredible small and hard to see.
