This beautiful pale golden 7.6 inch long Pale Large Sparkling Citrine Elestial Cluster weighs 2.61 pounds, 41.75 ounces or 1184 grams, has the appearance of a crystalline castle, exhibiting multiple distinctive termination tips and turrets. The top half of the main shaft and termination tip are remarkably clear and translucent.
This Pale Large Sparkling Citrine Elestial Cluster 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 cathedral is also ideal for placing on your altar or bedside table where it can impart its wonderful energies into your environment.
Citrine works to gently purify and cleanse the physical and astral bodies, energize the root, third and crown chakras, increase the flow of Universal Life Force energy throughout the mind, body and aura, and to protect the bearer from unwanted or deleterious energies impacting the bearer's energy field.

Elestial crystals such as this Citrine Cathedral exhibit layers of etchings and small extrusions in the form of points and turrets in clusters on the outer faces of the crystal.
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.
During a crystal healing or Reiki self-treatment session, place the crystal in your left hand, with the points pointing in toward your wrist. The left hand is the is the receptive hand. Or alternatively, just set the Citrine Elestial on a table or altar near you while you meditate. Focus your intent on connecting with the crystal's energy. Close your eyes, and relax.
Meditate quietly, observing your thoughts without pursuing them or allowing them to disturb your relaxation. Maintain a state of detached observation, neither approving or disapproving about your thoughts. Allow them to come and go, simply observing their passage. Maintain your attention on your breath, and attempt to breathe deeply and evenly. Breathe in slowly and evenly from the very bottom of your stomach and inhale deeply, until you have filled the diaphragm all the way to your throat. Exhale slowly and evenly through the nostrils, emptying the diaphragm all the way down to the very bottom of the lower stomach, several inches below the belly button. If you like, count the breaths as you go, until you reach one hundred.
Throughout the meditation, visualize a powerful golden light streaming into your body from the crystal, filling it completely as you count your breaths, so that by the time you complete your meditation, your body is completely filled with the golden-green light.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical 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.
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 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.
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.
The Archangel Michael Connection
This powerful Citrine Crystal contains hematite, or iron oxide, giving it a distinctive golden-orange hue, and a distinctive metaphysical connection with Archangel Michael.
Esoteric Christianity makes a link between hematite and Archangel Michael, and a quartz crystal containing hematite can provide the bearer with a powerful connection to Michael, providing access to the Archangel's loving wisdom and power to dissolve illusion through the activity of his famous sword, the sword of Ultimate Truth.
During the Libran month, the last half of September and first half of October, in the northern hemisphere, the Draconid meteor showers will be visible. At this time of year, when sensational meteor showers, largely composed of iron, traditionally streak across the night sky, Esoteric Christian philosopher Rudolph Steiner’s clairvoyant vision saw the traditional flashing iron sword of Michael.
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.
