Crystal Quartz

Besides being the most iconic and known mineral of all, Crystal Quartz is the second most abundant on earth. Part of the Quartz family, Crystal or Clear Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7 in the Mohs scale; and it’s usually  found in Sedimentary rocks deposits but can also be found in Igneous and Metamorphic rock formations as well. Colorless, transparent and/or translucent, Crystal Quartz forms in a Trigonal/Hexagonal system, giving this beautiful mineral its iconic ‘point’ shapes.

Crystal Quartz has been the most prized semi-precious stone for stone carving and jewelry making since prehistoric times specially in Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific and Central America. Pendants, medallions, vases, figurines and even skulls have been made from this beautiful mineral by ancient Aztecs, Greeks, Persians and Australian aboriginals. In ancient Greece it was known as ‘krustallos’ as they believed this mineral to be a form of permanent cooled ice; and even the word Quartz itself comes from the German word ‘quartz’ which it’s believed to be derived from the Slavic word for ‘hard’ as ice. Today it is mainly found in Brazil, Madagascar and Arkansas, USA.

Known as one of the most powerful and yet subtle crystals by reiki and crystal healers, Crystal Quartz is believed to be linked specifically to the Crown Chakra, but because of it’s ability to be easily programmed, it can be used for bringing balance to all the chakras. It is mainly used for cleansing and purifying a person’s energy field or even a stone’s. It is highly recommended as a tool for promoting personal growth and harmony; while at the same time as a go-to crystal for enhancing the immune system and soothing headaches.

Citrine

Part of the Quartz family, Citrine is one of the most popular and beloved stones of all; not only for its incredible sparkling beauty but also for its healing and metaphysical properties. The name Citrine is believed to come from the French word citron, meaning 'lemon' in relation to the rich yellow color of  this stone. The use of Citrine in jewelry making and decor can be traced back to Biblical times when Aaron, the High Priest had Citrine (known also as Chrysolitus) as one of the 12 gems of his powerful breastplate. During ancient Greek times, Citrine was popularly used in jewelry and in ornaments such as boxes, pots and even in weaponry. Later on, during the Renascence, blacksmiths and weapon makers, especially in Scotland, began making dagger handles from this stone.

 Today, Citrine can be found in Scotland, France, Russia, Madagascar and Brazil. Finding pure, natural citrine is getting more and more difficult with time as the natural deposits for this beautiful stone are coming to an end. But despite this, we can still find a new category of this stone called 'Heat Treated Citrine' which is obtained by heating high-quality Amethyst to extremely high temperatures. Contrary to popular believe, this process does not damage the stone in any way as crystals and minerals are used to the high temperatures within the core of the earth; so we could say that heat treating a stone is no more than a way to accelerate the natural process of nature.

 Citrine is commonly linked to the Third Chakra or Solar Plexus Chakra and is believed to radiate confidence, self-esteem, strength and prosperity. It is popularly known as the 'money stone' because of its ability to assist in business endeavors. When in possession of this stone, abundance is readily available not just in receiving but in sharing what we receive. Physically citrine can ease the digestive system (fighting constipation) and fight kidney infection. It can battle fatigue and be extremely regenerative as well as aid in circulation. It is highly recommended by Energy and Reiki Healers for women as it can balance hormones and relieve symptoms that come from hormonal shifts. Mentally and emotionally citrine can help fight insecurity, doubt, fear and depression.
