Use Citrine With Healing from our Chakra Crystal Set

Citrine energises every level of life! It cleanses the chakras and opens the intuition; that gut feeling we often ignore and go with our intellect instead? Well, the intuition which resides in the solar plexus chakra is a different kind of intellect to the brain and must not be ignored.
