This beautiful gemmy water-clear Smoky Citrine Earth Heart Crystal Pendant in sterling silver is topped off with a sparkling round Peridot gemstone and comes with a sterling silver chain in its own velvet jewel box.
This unusual and beautiful new pendant from one of our suppliers has been named Earth Heart Crystal because of its ability to create a "peaceful refuge in alignment with the deep and pure Heart of the Earth, revealing lessons in Oneness and facilitating humanity in achieving global consciousness."
When we first worked with this pendant, before the designers had come up with a name, I named it the Medicine Wheel because in working with it, I felt a strong connection to Native American traditions as well as a sense of deep protection, calm & access to my own Higher Wisdom, as well as being connected to a long line of Wisdom Keepers.
This lovely piece is perfectly clear with four planes of facets which converge to a central point imparting both a sense of stability and a sense of being centered. I would recommend this piece to anyone for Protection, Clarity, Inspiration or anyone doing Lightwork or Healing work.
The combination of smoky citrine and peridot energizes the solar plexus chakra, the heart chakra, and the crown chakra simultaneously, strengthening the will forces, opening the heart and connecting the bearer to Spirit.
Properties of Smoky Citrine
Smoky citrine is a stone of transformation, an alchemist’s stone. Smoky citrine provides a smooth and easy, graceful access to a very deep place.
Smoky Citrine combines the energies of these two powerful types of crystal. Smoky quartz and citrine are both found in high-temperature hydrothermal veins on Brazil, and both are used to transform negative or unwanted energies.
Smoky quartz is a traditional stone of slow transformation and purification of the emotional body through deep meditation, and citrine is the golden purifier, actively transforming and elevating the sluggish – or stuck -- energies in an individual’s energy system.
The alchemical symbolism of smoky citrine manifests most clearly when the crystal is backlit or held up to a bright light, or to the sun.
The deep golden-orange-reddish glow of the transformative citrine appears to rise up within the crystal, illuminating the intensely bright darkness of the smoky quartz from within.
Smoky quartz is often used by crystal healers to facilitate the extraction of energetic blockages that prevent the smooth flow of Universal Life Force energy throughout the body, mind and aura.
Smoky quartz works slowly and thoroughly to relieve imbalances in the physical and etheric bodies, with special emphasis on the solar plexus and its associated chakra, the third or Manipura chakra associated with personal power and vital energy. And it works on the hands and feet. Smoky quartz can, over time, help to balance the flow of vital energy throughout the physical and etheric bodies, and aids in the development of a healthy, fully functioning chakra system.
Smoky quartz is excellent for grounding the user and to provide a powerful energy barrier protecting the user from intrusive negative emotions and collective thought forms from the outer environment.
Smoky quartz "tends to refine the vibratory energies when one is in the state of meditation," Melody explains, "allowing for both the clarity of thought and the elimination of impeding will-fulness. It can be used to initiate a powerful force field which will absorb many forms of negativity, both from within oneself and from other sources."
Citrine is a form of quartz occurring in a variety of colors ranging from platinum white to yellow to orange-red.
Citrine's color is a result of iron impurities occurring naturally within the crystal. Citrine typically is formed as an iron-containing amethyst which becomes heated to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
From a New Age perspective, citrine is associated with the color gold. Gold is the color of Christ Consciousness, and thus citrine represents the crown chakra, which could be violet, white or gold, depending upon the circumstances.
Esoteric Christianity makes a link between iron (or hematite) and Archangel Michael, and a crystal containing iron 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, on October 8, 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. The meteoric sword of Michael was thought to cleanse the Earth’s atmosphere of summer's sulfurous influences, allowing the Higher Self to emerge and guide the initiate along the path of Spirit toward the birth of the Inner Christ Light, an event which takes place in December, during the festival of Christmas.

Properties of Peridot
Peridot (also known as olivine) is the common name given by gemologists and jewelers to several varieties of a fairly rare magnesium iron silicate crystal commonly found in lava formations and meteorites -- known more technically by mineralogists as fosterite and fayalite.
In America many jewelers sell green garnets as "peridot", which is somewhat confusing. Garnets are far more common than the much more desirable and hard to get "true" peridot, which is available only from a very few volcanic locations around the world, and from even more rare meteorite falls.
True peridot has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 and a high specific gravity, due to the presence of iron in the gemstone, which is often found in igneous formations heavy in hematite. Peridot kinds and colours vary as follows: chrysolite is a yellowish green; peridot or "evening emerald" normally exhibits olive pistachio or leek-green colour, of a hue more subdued than the emerald.
Peridot is said to have been one of the stones found in the breastplate of the high priest.
In the Western mystery school traditions and many New Age chakra systems, peridot is associated with the second and third chakras, because of its yellow-green coloration. Yellow is the color of the third chakra, found in the stomach and solar plexus region, which is associated with the astral body and issues of personal power, hopes, dreams, fantasies and aspirations. In these systems, green is associated with the fourth, or heart chakra, the mental body, issues of relationship, universal feelings of unity and compassion, and individual beliefs and values.
Metaphysical crystal experts say that peridot radiates a warm, relaxing and cleansing energy, related especially to the third and fourth chakras. Peridot is said to stimulate the heart and solar plexus chakras, bringing the activities of the mind into harmony with affairs of the heart. Peridot helps the bearer to an intellectual understanding of relationships, and to regulate the physical, mental, and emotional cycles surfacing in each stage of the life path.
Peridot is also said to lessen the impact of jealousy, traditionally associated with the color green, and chronic low-grade anger, traditionally associated with a sickly greenish yellow which is the color of bile, or gall.
Crystal healers often use peridot to tonify, energize and strengthen the body, which makes sense given its close association with the solar plexus and heart. For the same reason, peridot is used in the treatment of disorders of the lungs, heart, spleen and digestive tract.
