Besides writing, one of the things I LOVE doing is making gemstone beaded jewelry.  I’m going to try to list a “stone of the day” here in this blog, as I love the folklore and metaphysical properties that go hand in hand with gemstones.  My explanation is this:  We are energy.  Everything is energy.  We are bombarded from outer space with energy and we have energy at the very core of our planet pushing itself upward.  My belief is that the very compression energy that created the stones leaves its imprint on & in each stone.

After a summer of marine layer low clouds coming inland from the ocean and the last few days with fog, I am starting my “Stone of the Day” with the much needed Sun.

Today’s stone:  A vibrant yellow — Citrine.  From the Quartz family, Citrine is used for energizing & creativity.  This stone is used to protect & cleanse the “aura” (the energy that emanates from each person) and the chakras (the major energy points/circles of the body.  Citrine can raise self-esteem & confidence; it can enhance concentration.  This beautiful  stone is one used for Abundance.  When I co-owned a store, we kept a Citrine in our cash box.

Although this is the information I use, and freely give when I make & sell jewelry, some of the above information can appear to be paraphrased from the following books.  I have read & digested the information from them for years  – **Excellent information on stones can be found in “The Crystal Bible”  (Books 1 & 2) by Judy Hall and “Stone Power” by Dorothee L. Mella.  You may also visit www.firemountaingems.com and search through their “gem notes.”
