This huge 680 carat oval water clear Citrine Cushhion Cut Faceted Gemstone measures 2.75" x 1.85" and is 1.35 inches deep and weighs approximately 1/3 of a pound!
This golden gemstone will elevate the energy in your meditation room, treatment room or den. Just place it on your altar or a side table and feel the difference. This gorgeous golden citrine gemstone is a handful of liquid light the size of a goose egg, but not too large to hold in the hand during meditation. Just don't drop this treasure on the floor!
Because of global economic dislocations many Brazilian sources for citrine and other high-quality crystals have ceased production until they can receive better value when they sell. As a result citrine of this clarity and coloration is on short supply in global markets the last couple of years and prices for high quality citrine have skyrocketed.
This natural, untreated, unheated Brazilian citrine gemstone is a remarkable bargain. The normal price for such a water clear citrine gemstone would be $4 per carat, much more than our retail price for this rare beauty.
I have recently discovered the incredible power of highly faceted crystal gemstones for meditation and vibrational healing. Although natural crystals have always been my favorite, I began to use Vogel cut crystals in my Reiki healing practice and my interest in faceted crystals led me to experiment with crystal gemstones.
The number of facets, the intricacy of the design, the mastery of the cutter the quality of the materials used, and other factors, all contribute to the difficulty of cutting crystal gemstones. The power of polished, highly faceted gemstones for healing and meditation has been documented in the Hindu Vedic and Western alchemical traditions for millennia, and what I have discovered is that there is a special magic to crystal gemstones, just as there is to highly faceted diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires.
Try a crystal gemstone in meditation or in energy healing sessions. Hold it in your hand, keep it on your bedside table or altar or computer workstation, and experience the inner fire of crystal gemstones for yourself! Our experience is that highly faceted crystal gemstones have a powerful energy. Usually crystal gemstones are produced from the highest grade of crystal available and they also are designed to be as luminous and reflective as possible, increasing their ability to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy in meditation and healing sessions.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Citrine
Citrine is a powerful semi-precious stone which is a rare, more energetically powerful form of quartz crystal, characterized by a yellow color, ranging from white to deep copper. It is less common in nature than amethyst (another member of the quartz family, and one of the two semi-precious stones present in ametrine) but both are found in quartz veins, as well as volcanic locations and elsewhere in nature.
The color of citrine derives from small amounts (approximately 40 parts per million) of iron in the quartz. The difference between citrine and amethyst is only the oxidation state of the iron present in the quartz. Citrine typically is formed when an amethyst becomes heated to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
Citrine activates, opens and energizes the third chakra, including the navel and solar plexus, stimulating both the physical body and the mind, increasing endurance and elevating energy levels while promoting emotional balance (unlike other stimulants such as caffeine). Citrine is an excellent stone for clearing the aura of negative emotions.
Because it energizes the navel/solar plexus chakra, Citrine is said to aid in digestion and to activate the thymus, which regulates our immune system, thus promoting health and well-being. In addition, citrine is said to provide a feeling of comfort and optimism. I must admit, that when I wear or work with citrine, I have a great sense of well being and protection.
Citrine also stimulates the crown chakra, our doorway to Cosmic Consciousness, and helps unite the seven lower chakras and the physical body with the energy frequency of the Higher Self, aligning the eighth chakra with the rest of the energy body.
In our experience, citrine cleanses the emotional and etheric bodies, and stimulates the holder’s vital energies and physical body. It imparts a strong sense of protection if worn on the body or placed in a room where energy work takes place or groups gather.
Used in energy healing, citrine is said to transmit the golden light of unity consciousness, which is tuned to the very highest vibrations of an open eighth chakra -- the chakra above the crown of the head, said by the Western New Age chakra system to be the location of the Higher Self.
When Jane and I have used citrine in Reiki and crystal energy sessions with clients, they have reported feeling a gloden glow around them. We have also found that citrine is a powerful tool for extracting negative energies, gently dissolving energy blocks, and releasing negative emotions during sessions.
This crystal has been cleaned and charged with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energetic attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing so it will continue to channel and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation.
