What are crystals?
Crystals form in nature when liquids cool and start to harden, leaving a uniform pattern. For many centuries crystals were thought to have healing powers and were believed to bring the wearer good luck. Having crystals around the home is considered to get rid of negative energy, guard against a psychic attack, and helps to create a calm and peaceful environment when placed in the correct area of your home.

Citrine is one of my personal favorites and is known as the sunshine crystal, and it really is a ray of sunshine. Unlike the black crystals, this one fills the room with positive energy and abundance. It is a cleanser and regenerator. Whist banishing gloom and negativity, this stone will help to smooth family discord. This crystal is often used in its raw form and does not need cleansing. It is best placed in the wealth corner of your home, which is the farthest back left room of the house.

Best to place it in the bedroom, next to the bed, or under the pillow.
