This citrine, is a heat treated amethyst, an affordable alternative to natural citrine which is relatively rare. It shows a range of translucent colors from sunny yellow to brown. With its warm colours, it resonates with warmth and sun. As a result, it symbolizes positivity and happiness.
Citrine is considered the "merchant stone" due to it's ability to promote abundance, creativity and power. It also stimulates the crown chakra and is therefore helpful in stimulating the mind. It also helps align the chakras and balances energy.
The stone is said to help the bearer strengthen their self-esteem (think sunny!), because of it's positive and vibrancy flow of energy. Physically, it can assist with digestion and endurance. In ancient times, this stone was used to help purify the body of toxins and improve blood circulation.

Ethically Sourced: It was very important in the crystal and gemstone sourcing that it was purchased only from mining suppliers that had the correct certificates that established their operations as safe and environmentally sound. My wholesaler is adamant on ensuring the crystals are fair-trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufactures and families. Most of the semi-precious stones and crystals come from family owned mines that are passed down from generations (like a family farm here in Canada).
I understand it can be difficult to feel a stone's energy when shopping online. When selecting stones for your order, I personally select the stones with intention for you based on the stock available.
There can be variance in the stone's colouring and shape, as is the world of stone, gems and crystals are non-refundable. No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
Disclaimer: While using your gems/crystals in practice, please note that Hermit's Path does not guarantee any stone to have any physical or mental health impact. I do not make any claims that it will help. Remember, this is a personal practice... connecting with the energy is not a substitute for traditional medicine where it may be needed. :)
