It is a real gem, not heat treated and so very rare. It is a type of golden citrine that has a rainbow, crystalline internal structures and mirror like cleavages. Whew, it really packs a visual punch.
This very high grade specimen has been hand-cut and hand polished into a gorgeous multi-sided, faceted point with incredible clarity and sparkle. The tip is absolutely pristine, perfect too. You could use this as a display piece or as part of a healing grid, or as a "cure" for feng shui in the wealth & prosperity section. However you choose to use it, this lovely generator point will give you years of use and an uplifting feeling.Citrine is well known for bringing wealth, health and prosperity so it can be used everyday for multiple physical, mental and spiritual benefits. Notes from my professional experience. In my healing practice, i use citrine as one of the essential eleven stones on a daily basis, primarily for abundance, success, and overall positive energy. It is one of the premier stones when one must energize, heal and recharge on any level. Emotionally and physically it has an immediate and powerful effect to uplift and bring light into the aura. It is frequently used in feng shui (wealth corner), in the meditation space (on altar) and at place of business (in safe, cash register or cash box). It never needs cleansing and can operate entirely by itself without any other crystal to complement it.
What is "natural" citrine the backstory. The listing here is natural citrine, not heat treated. But its somewhat confusing if this is a new area to you.
That depends on the type of stone - it is a geode or is it a translucent quartz type stone. Most citrine is heat treated amethyst (a member of the quartz family).
In fact that is the only way that citrine geodes are created. That is also true of citrine "points" or "roots" which often have a tooth type appearance with gold in the center and/or top with a white type root. That again is heat treated amethyst. "Citrine" so named is amethyst that is heat treated. Now that is not different really than what the earth already does, it creates the crystals, their colors and formations with heat as well as pressure to make them.
If you heat up amethyst (which belongs to the quartz family), it turns into a lovely golden color and that is how citrine is born. There is nothing wrong with it, it does have a different energy than amethyst, but it is transformed into something new and that something new is called citrine. Virtually all respected metaphysical healers (including melody and judy hall) use and describe heat treated amethyst as citrine with its own metaphysical energies and perfectly acceptable to use. There is no need to reject citrine as not "natural" - after all it was grown in the earth originally as amethyst and then heated to bring out a golden color, which was already there.
Now that being said, i also just love natural citrine (as listed here) which is really in fact a unique type of yellow quartz - which is just quartz that has minerals in it that make it look golden. That yellow quartz is often called "natural citrine" because it is quartz that has not been heat treated. And that is the case with the stone in this listing. It does look quite different than amethyst (which is a type of purple quartz) and this citrine has been cut and polished to showcase its beauty. And just like amethyst it is a member of the quartz family but a different color.In the world of gems and minerals there is alot of confusion about names, and some things have 2 or 3 common names. Virtually all of it is fake, just lab colored quartz or mostly glass. Most natural citrine is considered more rare and comes from brazil, the united states, africa or areas where high quality golden quartz is found - and it is considerably more expensive than the citrine generated from amethyst, which is plentiful and is found in many countries besides brazil, uruguay and bolivia. I hope this helps explain our complicated world.
