What's in a box?

No, it isn't a cat.  In my case it's 3 pieces of Citrine and 1 piece of Peridot.

It started this past weekend when we went to visit Garrett's god parents.  We stopped at a coin store that also sold items from estate sales.  I decided to take a look through the silver charms to see if I could find anything interesting and while I picked up several pieces my favorite was this little box. It was a bit tarnished but polished up rather nicely.
I just fell in love with this charm

I found an extra chain for it but still had to figure out what to put inside.  I settled on Citrine because of its properties.  There was a decent amount of room in my tiny necklace so I got 3 cut stones in different shapes. A round, an oval an a tear drop shape.

While purchasing them she asked me if it was Garrett's birthstone, it isn't but I thought it might make a nice addition.  I added a lovely piece of Peridot to the mix because it has some great properties of its own.

I'm loving the necklace because it's just so unique. I can also adjust what stones are in the box depending on what energies I'm looking for.

I'm loving it too. Not at all heavy, I often forget I'm wearing it.
