Another great post on one of my favorite subjects.
Aside from the sheer beauty of these creatures they are said to be a symbol of messages about the nature of illusion. They ask you to look at your own life and realize what is truth and what are the illusions you have created that restrict your actions/ideas and keep you from realizing your goals.
A powerful reminder.
The Citrine Gemstone:
The stone for the month of November. Many people have come to know and love this stone under the name gold topaz, or Madeira or Spanish topaz, although in actual fact it has very little in common with the higher-quality gemstone topaz – except for a few nuances of colour. Thus the history of the citrine is closely interwoven with that of the topaz, and coincides with it completely when it comes to the interpretation of alleged miraculous powers. However, the citrine is a member of the large quartz family, a family which, with its multitude of colours and very various structures, offers gemstone lovers almost everything their hearts desire in terms of adornment and decoration, from absolutely clear rock crystal to black onyx. And it does so at prices which are by no means unaffordable.
I truly desire this ring.
