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. Energy healers believe this stone is primarily associated with the solar plexus chakra (energy center in the body) & is said to be for balancing yin-yang energy + helping one access their personal power. Smokey Quartz is also a from of Quartz, and owes its color to gamma irradiation and the presence of traces of aluminum present in the earth. Energetically, it is said to be one of the most grounding & clearing stones available, both purifying & protecting. It is associated with the Root chakra (energy center). I like to think of it as a nervous system reset. Energy healers believe it to be great for anxiety & calming nerves. Please note - It can fade over long periods of time in direct sunlight.
These gorgeous point comes from the earth in Brazil where they were polished and the bases were cut. They are about 1 inch in height. Photographed A - E from left to right - make a selection and the correct photo should populate. They have some small knicks on them - see photos - a more so than others. Some are closer to citrine than they are to smokey - but all were sold to me as smokey citrine.
