Citrine and Sand Dollar Pocket Rock Set 
Abundance and Prosperity

Sand dollar refers to the more flattened species of sea urchins.  The name is derived from the resemblance of their skeletons to a dollar, which originally meant a large silver coin.  Other names are food oriented like sea cookie and sea biscuit, although the later may specifically mean thicker ones or individual species.  We do not normally associate it with prosperity today but food was the main form of wealth historically.

Citrine is a variety of quartz colored by trace amounts of iron.  The name comes from the French citron, meaning  “lemon or citron”.  A citron is the ancestor of all citrus fruits, mostly inedible except for its fragrant rind.  It is a symbol of abundance, happiness, and longevity in faiths from Judaism to Hinduism.   Most citrine in the market is produced by heat treating amethyst, which produces an orange color concentrated in certain areas.  Natural citrine is rare but preferred by many for metaphysical purposes.  It is a pale golden color with a more even coloring.

You will receive one set of pocket rocks: a hand polished, light yellow, natural citrine pebble and a sand dollar.  The citrine measures approximately 1" - 1 3/4" long by 3/4" wide.  The sand dollar measures approximately 1" - 1 1/2" wide.  As a set they weigh approximately 1-1.5 oz. Stock photo used.
