Are your stones or crystals treated in any way?  I have read that they are best when in their natural state - no heat treat, dyes or chemical processes.



Thank you for your email and for visiting our site.   About 98% of the crystals on our site are Natural, however, we do offer some synthetic and treated stones.  We sell both heat treated and natural citrine in our shop.  The beautiful golden yellow-orange citrine that you see in jewelry and crystal shops has all been heat treated.  Most is not marked as such, but this is the case.  The deep yellow citrine color does not occur naturally.  Bright yellow Citrine is created by heating natural amethyst crystals to approximately 600-800 degrees.  We could almost turn natural amethyst into heat treated citrine by putting it into our baking ovens, but we are about 200 degrees too cool to reach the transformation point.  The color of Natural Citrine is a pale honey yellow rather than the bright yellow orange that we often see.

Since citrine has either been heated naturally by the earth or heat treated by man, it is by nature a stone that has been transmuted from another source.  Thus, Citrine is a wonderful crystal to help transmute negative energy and to promote personal power and balance in our solar plexus chakras.  I collect both natural citrine and heat treated citrine and use both in my Reiki and energy sessions.

We also offer the sparkly goldstone hearts that are quite popular with children and make fun gifts.   Although we do not find them energetically useful, they are pretty.

Our "Aura" quartz, are natural clear quartz crystals that have been heated to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit and mixed with the precious metals.   The exact combination is listed in the item descriptions of each Aura Quartz Crystal.  Although our Aura Quartz is man made, they carry a spectacular vibration that is quite popular with many energy workers.   If you're familiar with the vibration of clear quartz points, you will enjoy working with one of our Aura quartz points.

Have a wonderful day!
