This lovely natural, unpolished richly golden colored Namibian Citrine Elestial Rainbow Bouquet, weighing 3.40 ounces, exhibits a large hexagonal generator point surrounded by a multiple smaller points and turrets, and can be used as a wand because of its shape, making this a beautiful crystal for meditation or energy healing sessions. This beautiful 3.5" long citrine cluster comes from Namibia.
Although we used a high-pressure water jetting unit very meticulously on this specimen, you can actually see tiny bits of the sandy colored matrix from which this stone originated, lodged between the points here and there.
This Namibian Citrine Elestial Bouquet offers protection and beauty to the one who uses it. It is a good size to have in your treatment room during energy work, while working with a client on a massage table or during distance Reiki. This elestial cluster is also ideal for placing on your altar or bedside table where it can impart its wonderful energies into your environment for meditation or simply to cleanse the energy in a room.
Properties of Citrine
Citrine is a powerful semi-precious stone which is a rare, more energetically powerful form of amethyst, characterized by a yellow color, ranging from white to deep copper. It is less common in nature than amethyst but both are found in quartz veins, as well as volcanic locations.
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 and pressurized to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
Metaphysically, citrine combines the energy of the Yellow and the Golden Rays, activating the solar plexus chakra and the crown chakra respectively. Working on the third chakra, which is the solar plexus chakra, associated in the Western mystery school tradition with the color yellow, citrine strengthens the bearer's energy system and infuses the "hara" center and solar plexus with Universal Life Force Energy, also known as "chi" or "prana" in the Chinese and Hindu systems of energy medicine.
Working on the seventh, or crown chakra, which is associated with the colors violet, gold and white in the Western mystery school traditions, citrine opens the gateway to Higher Mind, strengthening the energetic connection between the personality and the Higher Self, and helping us to achieve conscious awareness of our Higher Purpose in everything we do and say throughout our busy lives.
In addition, citrine is an ideal gemstone for protection. Used to strengthen the aura and surround the bearer in a bubble of golden light, citrine provides the bearer with a safe, secure personal space, free from the interference of negative or unwanted individual or collective thought forms, deleterious emotional states projected by others, and even inauspicious astrological influences, which can be literally burned away when they encounter such a strong golden aura as citrine helps to create.
We use citrine for spiritual purification and to energize the subtle bodies.
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.
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 golden 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.
Knowledge workers could benefit from placing this Citrine crystal on a meditation altar, in the living room or dining room or next to their computer, where its energy can help maintain the electrical equilibrium in the crystal's vicinity, and its beauty could be admired by passers-by. The energy of this golden citrine bouquet cluster is powerful enough to alter the energy in its environment, and could easily be used to help transform negative thought forms and negative emotions in an office environment.
Properties of Elestial Crystals
Elestial crystals exhibit layers of etchings and small extrusions in the form of points and turrets in clusters on the outer faces of the crystal or covering the entirety of the crystal's body.
Elestial crystals function as "library crystals", providing access to information acquired during the long geologic ages of the crystal's formation, including metaphysical information gathered during this period of crystalline growth.
Elestials also have the ability to access the subconscious and the superconscious, providing us with the information we need at any given moment to accelerate our spiritual progress.
Elestial crystals by their very nature possess the power to integrate the energies of multiple crystals into a unified energy field. They help us to recall the wisdom teachings of the Ancient civilizations that functioned as Caretakers of the Earth, and to integrate those teachings into our nervous systems, so that we exemplify those teachings in thought, word and deed, effortlessly and automatically.
Elestials help to manifest the information needed by each individual to move forward to the next level of their own personal spiritual evolution, enabling us to integrate unconscious childhood memories, traumas from past lives, and intellectual knowledge accrued through study over time into our conscious awareness, clearing the unintegrated energies of their negative charge.
In addition, elestials enable us to surrender the ego in conscious acceptance of Unity Consciousness, the loving wisdom that integrates each individual with the great web of life.
Place this strongly benevolent citrine bouqet anywhere in your house, or by your bedside, or meditation room and gain access to fragmented parts of yourself.

Working with crystals is a wonderful way to accelerate this process, and with a stone like this one we are doubly urged to not only remember our connection to the Divine in everyday, but to remember our sacred trust and obligation with the Earth.

Citrine can be placed in the sun for short periods to charge the stone, but care should be taken not to overexpose the stone to sunlight over time, to prevent any fading. Alternatively, the stone can be placed outside in moonlight to absorb Universal Life Force Energy.
We often use crystals for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
