Citrine February 22 2013

 Feb 22, 2013

For today's blog we are going to discover the beautiful stone of citrine. Those of you that we have visited us at the Alberta Kennel Club shows have seen our collection of Raw Cut Crystals. Amethyst, Rose quartz, Green Aventurine and Snow Quartz are now been joined by Citrine, Smoky Quartz and Carnelian. We received our stock yesterday and I am overjoyed with the quality. The new stones is beautiful and we can hardly wait to share them with our wonderful followers.

Citrine is a "feel better" stone. It is also known to attract wealth, abundance and prosperity. Iron is the element which gives Citrine its warm golden color. Extreme heat, whether naturally occurring or applied by man, will turn amethyst into a burnt golden color citrine. The properties of heated amethyst are similar to those of real citrine,  just less intense. Citrine is found throughout the world in deposits wherever other quartz is present.
