Properties of Crystal Spheres
Crystal balls conjure images of witches, warlocks and spells. But modern day spiritual seekers understand that the crystal ball is a microcosm, a doorway, a transmitter and receiver of energies and a very valuable ally for those involved in divination or meditation, and all those who want to strengthen their intuitive powers.
Natural quartz crystal balls are cut from veins of quartz. Crystal balls usually have inclusions or veils. Rainbows, metallic flakes, and milky clouds are often found inside crystal balls.
In traditional crystal ball divination, the holder of the ball has cleared the stone of all outside energies and hands it to the questioner. The querent passes energy into the ball and returns it to the holder.
The holder then enters into the ball, metaphorically speaking, meditating upon the interior until inner spiritual guidance provides the appropriate information about the querent and the question.
The inclusions within the crystal often function to create an imaginative landscape and a backdrop for the emergence and retreat of meaningful, symbolic forms, such as are often found in clouds, bonfires or running water.
This beautiful citrine sphere exhibits an inner abundance of mica like inclusions that sparkle in sunlight and throw off beautiful rainbows visible within the crystal and on its surface, providing a rich visual environment for focusing energy and meditation alike. You'll also find a gossamer cloud like inclusion in one hemisphere, which reaches the surface of the sphere, and appears to be part of the original matrix from which the crystal was removed before polishing.
Crystal balls can be charged with Reiki energy, placed in the sun -- and in moonlight -- for additional energizing, and then placed on an altar or elsewhere in any room to subtly alter the energy in the space.
Crystal balls radiate a vibration of unity, and can be excellent doorways to higher realms, so they can be a point of contact with spiritual guides and teachers, both those in physical bodies at this time and those whose energies are primarily elsewhere.
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.
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 thoughtforms, deleterious emotional states projected by others, and even inasuspicious astrological influences, which can be literally burned away when they encounter such a strong golden aura as citrine helps to create.
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 with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
We know you will use this powerful crystal with loving care and respect its long evolutionary journey deep in the Earth, which has developed its unique metaphysical properties and beautiful appearance.
