Citrine for spring...

Thursday 5 September 2013

As Spring warms our hearts and souls now is the perfect time to do a little crystal and space clearing (Spring cleaning!).
Citrine is said to be the premier stone of manifestation, imagination, personal will and bringing prosperity into the home. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving.

It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.

Cleanse your crystals and add a little Citrine to your collection this spring.

Check out our online shop range or find your next special piece here at the Crystal Castle.
