Ever since I was a little girl, I was enamored with the beauty of stones. The idea that pressure, time and temperature could all collude to create the most beautiful of objects seemed like a miracle in an of itself.
This month, we celebrate November's birthstone, citrine, a vibrant yellow stone that offers a ray of sunshine on a wintry day.
For those of us who believe that each stone comes with its own healing properties and energy, citrine is well known in crystal work as a success and prosperity stone to the point that it is called the "Success Stone." It is said to promote and manifest success and abundance in all areas, and in many ways.
It is particularly used to promote success in business if used in the cash box of a shop, carried or worn, earning it another nickname, "Merchant's Stone." In addition to manifesting abundance, citrine also brings energies of generosity so that the prosperity and success is shared.
Citrine is a solar plexus chakra stone used metaphysically to increase, magnify and clarify personal power and energy. This increased personal power can be used for the focused intent of the individual, as it brings will power as well.
Citrine is a fabulous stone to use to combat negative energy of any kind by breaking them up and dissipating them.
We're thrilled to start offering our birthstones each month in a standard set of collections, meant to bring you energy and positive energy wherever the journey may take you.
