Amethyst comes from the quartz family and can range in colour from pale to deep purple.
You can also find heat-treated versions that are green (prasiolite) and yellow (so-called 'citrine’).

What does this mean for us living in the here and now?
Amethyst is a powerful crystal, used to protect and purify both the physical and spiritual body. It is strongly related to the third eye, the seat of intuition and the crown chakra.
When our energy in these chakras is blocked, we can become clumsy physically, anxious and blunder through thought and decision making.

Citrine is both beautiful and powerful, channelling creativity and clarifying thought and emotion.
This is a gorgeous addition to your crystal collection. From the quartz family and ranging in colour from pale yellow to orange and amber, there are two types of Citrine: naturally occurring and heat-treated amethyst. The difference can be seen in the golden yellow colour. If it is extremely clear and saturated it is a heat-treated amethyst. Despite this, it still has similar properties to naturally occurring Citrine, though the latter tends to contain a more powerful energy. Ask me or any of my wonderful crystal experts at Shiny Storm; we are more than happy to help if you are unsure which is which!
Citrine is associated with the sacral and solar plexus chakras and is known to be beneficial for creativity, manifestation and imagination.
This beautiful crystal can help to open the door to inner thought during manifestation, awakening your creative thought and then helping to drive the action needed to bring those ideas into reality. In this way, Citrine is a stone which can bring great joy and abundance as your positive thoughts become tangible things.

Helps with: Encouraging abundance, creativity, self-esteem and self-image, creating generosity, promoting clarity, manifestation, personal action (or getting stuff done!), facilitating new beginnings.

If you’re not sure where to put it but you would love to encourage more prosperity to enter your life, place Citrine in the back-left corner of your home. This is the prosperity corner, which can be found by standing at the front door, facing inward and looking toward the back-left. In fact, placing Citrine in the back-left corner of any room will increase the riches flowing into your life. Consider your place of work, whether that is a bricks and mortar shopfront, an online business or your office: where would Citrine be best placed to promote abundance?
Harmony ✧ Power ✧ Healing

I always place a Clear Quartz close to a Smoky Quartz, since the later will convert that negative energy or emotion to positive energy.
Use a cluster of Clear Quartz points to cleanse and clear your crystal collection with ease.
