I think these are some of my favorite textures, the texture of natural crystals, natural beautiful gem crystals. Here we see two shades of amethyst and one cluster of citrine.
I’ve always been a big collector of crystals and enjoy the possibilites of crystals and the mystical meanings and properties.
Amethyst, has legendary properties throughout the ages to stimulate, as well as, soothe the mind and emotions.
The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue. [Megemont, 24][Kunz, 58-59][Simmons, 28] (See the Legends and Lore section for an alternate version.)
Citrine, the stone for wealth and maintaining it. As well as being a beautiful jewelry stone, is one that I try to keep around. It is also supposed to be helpful in personal relationships, and as in introvert, I need all the help I can get here too. Maybe I should have this one me all the time.
Natural Citrine tumblestones, placed where light catches them, clears unfriendly ghosts from an area. Sprinkle a Citrine elixir weekly to prevent the negative energies from returning. [Eason, 89]
A small warning: Citrine may exacerbate aggressiveness in some. It is not recommended for those with a fiery, quick-tempered nature, and should be avoided by people with a tendency to slander or gossip. [Megemont, 60]
Place in the wealth corner of your home or business, or in the cash box. Citrine fades in sunlight. Read More from my reference
