Natural Citrine Cathedral Cluster
Expand your Citrine collection with this rare Natural Citrine Cathedral Cluster. Natural Citrine tends to be paler than heat-treated Citrine and almost resembles Smoky Quartz. It is not as sparkly or deep in colour and therefore not as stereotypically “pretty”, however, to the crystal “purist” this is real Citrine!
This specimen was found in a mine at the border of China and Burma. My understanding is that this mine is now closed.

Citrine Crystal Healing Properties
Citrine is thought to be a great manifester. It is believed to help clear and activate the lower chakras, the powerful points in our energy system for manifestation and creation work. Also, this crystal helps us maintain direction and overcome obstacles.
Similarly, it may assist with setting proper emotional boundaries and clearly maintaining them. In addition, many find this crystal has a joyful, playful energy that can bring light and optimism.
History and Uses
The name Citrine, comes from the French word citron meaning lemon. It was used as a gemstone in Greek jewellery as long ago as 300BC. This crystal varies in colour from the deep amber of heat treated Amethyst, to the pale yellows and browns of the natural variety.
Citrine is a member of the quartz family, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. Its yellow colouring comes from the inclusion of iron in the quartz.
Natural Citrine is mostly a pale yellow colour, while the darker, more orange specimens are often heat treated Amethyst. The latter is the most widely found and popular type of Citrine. Deposits are found in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and the USA.

Cathedral Quartz is also referred to as a Light Library or Cathedral Lightbrary (Lightbrury). Its form is reminiscent of turrets on an ancient castle or cathedral. They can often look as if they are made up of many different crystals but they all form parts of one main crystal.
These crystals are believed to hold a record of all that has occurred on Earth. As such, by meditating with one of these amazing crystals, it is thought to be a tool to attune to the Universal Mind and access the Akashic records.
Quartz is a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal. As such, it grows smaller points along the body of the main crystal, running parallel and partially embedded. It is found in Brazil, Madagascar, Africa, Russia and Switzerland.
