Amethyst & Citrine (code: Am/Cit 1)
***Amethyst & Citrine***
Amethyst and Citrine are two crystals that everybody should own. Amethyst is an excellent all-rounder go-2 crystal and is one you will find in every crystal therapists tool kit. It covers a multitude of spiritual, physical and mental problems that we face in daily life. It is a beautiful purple stone and has a very calming effect when you hold it.
Citrine is another stone you will find in every crystal therapists tool kit and with good reason. Citrine is actually Amethyst that has been superheated deep within the earth (several hundred degrees). While this action does not change the internal structure of the crystal, it does change its properties. Citrine carries the rays of the sun within it and is a much more upbeat energy compared to Amethyst.
You can read below to find out more of their individual properties, please note that these properties are not exhaustive. I have also included further down some ideas on what you can use the crystals for.

Working with crystals doesn’t need to be scary or confusing. Here are a few easy ways for you to work with both of these stones.
Amethyst is excellent at dealing with headaches. Lay down and simply place a piece of Amethyst on your forehead for 10-20 minutes and let the Amethyst sooth your headache.
How about a little crystal therapy bath…the next time you have a bath, place a piece of Amethyst in the water (away from your body though, you don’t want to scratch your skin). Relax for at least 20 minutes. Once you’ve finished you leave your crystal to dry until you need it again.
Citrine is one of the best stones to work with if you suffer from stomach nerves as it is a solar plexus stone. We all know that feeling you get in your tummy when you feel upset. Simply place a piece of Citrine on that area and sitting quietly for 10-20 minutes will help sooth this feeling.
You can also use Citrine for a crystal therapy bath session. Both Amethyst and Citrine are members of the quartz family and they are perfect safe in water and are non-toxic. You need to take great care with placing crystals in water, not all are non-toxic, you can look this up on google to be safe.
In this set you will receive the Amethyst & Citrine set as shown in the photo. The photo of the set has been taken alongside a 50p to try and show the scale of each crystal, the 50p does not come with the stones.
The Amethyst is Uruguayan Amethyst which generally gives a much deeper purple colour. The Citrine is from Brazil but is not genuine Citrine, it is heat treated Amethyst.
There is nothing wrong with heat treated Citrine, after all this process happens naturally deep within the earth. Many people prefer heat treated Citrine over natural, especially in view of the price difference. It is a beautiful stone and has a wonderful energy. I have many around my own home and office.
Please do be aware that with the Citrine being heat treated, it is extremely fragile and extreme care should be taken when handling it or you some of the points could break off.
Pop a piece of Citrine in the wealth corner of your home to help attract money. The wealth corner is the furthest left corner from your front door.
Remember when it comes to buying crystals, each piece is individual, and you will not find 2 the same
Each set will be carefully packaged and sent in a plain box along with a full information pack on how to care for your crystals.
