Citrine Geode Heart
This large raw Citrine Heart has excellent color and looks great with the sun shining on it. It was formed as a geode with the citrine crystals forming on the inside as it cooled.
Citrine is a variety of Quartz that gets its color from the presence of iron. The name appears to be taken from the French word "Citron" (lemon) referring to its color. The largest deposit is located in Brazil and is sometimes referred to as Brazilian Topaz. It is also found in Spain, France, and Madagascar. Metaphysically, Citrine is considered the Abundance stone and attracts money and fortune to the owner.
The heart shape has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and intellectual core of human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love, friendship, and an openhearted attitude, which many believe heightens the metaphysical effects of the stone.
