Compelled to buy Citrine

For a couple of weeks I have felt drawn to citrine and I saw a citrine ring in a shop, but its price was prohibitive, and I am trying to reduce my materialism. Thought about it for a couple of days then took in an old heavy gold ring of mine, more valuable, and he agreed to a straight swap. Don't care about the different worth, HAD to have it (even though I rarely wear jewellry) am now really, really happy with it and am keen to see what it helps manifest in my life. Great to read the other responses and how am not the only one to be mysteriously drawn to a gemstone.

Amber and Sunstone

I've heard that women are resonate with the moon, but I strangely find myself attracted toward Amber and Sunstone, crystals that resonate with the sun. Something about the fiery hue always puts me in a trance. The energy it gives me is empowering and encouraging. According to Ayurvedic medicine, I'm Pitta which means I'm dominated by fire and my feng shui birth element is fire also. I guess I'm more of a fiery type of gal.

I was in a crystal shop a few months back and felt instantly drawn to a stone that seemed to change colour depending on which angle you saw it from. I was allowed to touch it and as soon as I picked it up I knew I had to buy it as I am still young (12) and my parents think that holistic healing is all lies. I couldn't tell them why I was so drawn to the stone. I bought it anyway and it is officially my fave gemstone!!!:D
—Guest I love gemstones


I am just drawn to this stone. Anytime I head into the store to get stones for my jewelry making, I inevitability pick up a strand of wonderful Mookaite Jasper. I love the combo of colors, the shades of maroon mixed with cream, mustard, purple, and garnet, all put together in little pieces of art from mother nature. The stone has such a profound healing and calming effect for me.

Blue Lace Agate and Aquamarine

My favorite healing gemstone is blue lace agate and aquamarine. I always gazed at these stones to feel their comforting vibration.

Clear Quartz

As a crystal therapist, I use many different crystals and gemstones in my practice. If there were just one stone I could have, it would be clear quartz crystals. They are programmable, making them the true powerhouse of stones. They can be used for any situation and there are so many different forms of quartz. Truly a gift from Mother Earth.

Fortune Stones

I have seen a palm reader last week. The thing she told me was quite right. At the end she asked me to buy a stone from her which would bring me fortune! it was quite expensive and I didn't bother, but I am thinking whether there is such a thing? (Note from the Guide, I think you were right not to purchase the stone, that sounds like a scam to suck money out of you. There is no one stone called a "fortune stone" although there are stones that attract fortune, jade for one. I'd have more confidence in a reader who suggested you get a type of stone, but didn't try to sell you one.)

Carnelian plus citrine= more energy

When I am tired and low on energy, I lie down and put two small carnelians below my feet and one citrine tumbled stone above my head and can actually feel the energy come to me as I lay there for 10-15 minutes, to recharge.

Amethyst is the crystal that I use most

Amethyst is very healing and appears to help with anxiety and pain. I wear it daily, but not at night, as too much can keep you awake.

Bloodstone, Moonstone

My absolute favorite is bloodstone, I use it for most all of my healing when related to the body... The other stone I used was moonstone, with amethyst accents when I was pregnant. Those two in combination were used to help with a difficult pregnancy. I had no problems... even though I was super high risk.

Carnelian is a Favorite

I personally love carnelian for its many healing properties. I think it is one of the best stones for fertility and emotional stability.

A few years ago I saw a beautiful green tourmaline ring in a jewelry store, it was very costly but for months I would go by and look at it, I was captivated! The stone was fascinating for some reason, I knew it was meant for me but at $3000.00 -not! The shop keeper finally let me have it for a fraction of that price. It was indeed meant to be mine.

Amethyst, Kyanite and Azurite

I love all crystals ans use them regularly, but my favourites are these three. I always have them at hand. The kyanite to cleanse the aura, the azurite to give instant relief, particularly if there are energy blocks and the amethyst is my all purpose stone. But when I happened to casually pick up a labradorite pendant just to take a look (I'd no intention of buying anything then) I just couldn't put it down for the entire hour I was in the shop and finally had to buy it! ;) I wear it often and it feels so good!

A small carnelion attracted me one day, almost 3 years back when I was browsing in a shop selling crystals and jewelry. I was stuck with this small, uneven carnelion and wanted to buy it straight away. The shop keeper, a smiling, warm man explained that the stone will make me popular. I was looking for a job those days and feeling very de-energized due to my joblessness. So I picked up the stone, and the thought I had was that now I shall have a job soon. And a new job did manifest for me post this event. It's only now that I know that citrine is a crystal associated with manifestation.

A gift well given

I recently bought a beautiful amethyst round ball piece for my best friend's mother. As soon as I saw this she popped into my head and because if my past knowledge with the importance of an individual coming into your thoughts I had to buy it, So I did. It was pricey and I doubt that she has ever been given a crystal before but she must be in need of a healing or be in need of postitive things around her. I am so excited to be giving her a gift that she may have forever and I am excited to see her grow a appreciation for crystals and their healing powers.
