COMMENTS: Circa 1980's. With over 4 carats of citrine, this bangle is bright and sparkly! In between each oval citrine are 2 round diamonds which total 30 points. This bangle bracelet is crafted of 14k gold with latch and safety chain. Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. Everything about this stone emanates positivity and joy. Even its name, which is derived from the French word for lemon, carries a sense of sun and joy attached to it. Found naturally in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and USA, this gemstone has been an ornamental gem for civilizations as early as 300 B.C., and a favorite with jewelry makers since the ancient Greeks and Romans. Even in first century A.D., citrine was being fashioned into cabochon rings and used in intaglio work. Later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria would become fascinated by the beauty of the stone, and as a result it would be used by Scottish men in kilt pins, shoulder broaches, and to adorn their swords and the handles of their daggers. The stone’s popularity resurged again during the Art Deco era, as early Hollywood stars boasted citrine jewelry like elaborate brooches, grand necklaces and other pieces where large faceted citrine was the center piece. Meditation with citrine brings warmth, clarity and inspiration. A good mantra to use with citrine crystal meditation is: I am Light, I spread Light. This emanates vibrancy, and will assist in you in bringing energy flow to soul, mind and creativity. To use a citrine point in manifestation rituals, just write your intentions on a piece of paper and place them underneath the point. Combine with different stones to amplify the specific goal of the manifestation. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
