Named after the lemon for its rich yellow to orange/brown coloring, citrine is a member of the quartz family. It was frequently used in Hellenistic and Roman times for rings, intaglios and other jewelry. Though its primary source in Antiquity, as now, was Ceylon, deposits are also known in Spain and the Ural Mountains. Metaphysical science values citrine for its transformation energy, which is thought to raise low vibrations to a higher level, makes it useful for healing and meditation. Citrine is also considered as a luck talisman to bring success in all business ventures. In addition to its curative and soothing properties, its warm, glowing color brings pleasure to the senses. Since the earliest antiquity, hematite has been prized for its protective qualities; virtually every major culture, but especially the Egyptians and the Persians, has used the stone in a talismanic capacity. The stone is believed to alleviate the hemorrhage, and to stimulate the iron in the circulation system, thus relieving fatigue. The ancients also felt that hematite gave courage to the wearer, and warriors frequently rubbed the stone over their bodies before battle to make themselves invincible. The gem’s mysterious physical properties—it seems part stone, part metal—makes it as appealing to the modern eye as it has always been throughout history. - (FJ.2313)
