Geology and History

Natural Citrine is rare.  Citrine is a transparent yellow variety of Quartz.  Ranging in colour from pale to golden yellow, honey or almost brown and may contain rainbow or other mineral inclusions.  The name comes from the French word citron meaning lemon.  It was used as a gem in ancient Greece as far back as 300 B.C.

Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst that produces an enhanced Citrine colour, usually a deeper amber or orange-reddish shade.  Most natural Citrine is a pale yellow colour.  Citrine’s colour is caused by colourising agents that are built into the crystal lattice.  Colour is not caused by inclusions of other minerals although it can contain traces of aluminium.

Metaphysical Properties

An impressively strong stone of abundance, wealth and prosperity.  Citrine is a powerful cleanser and energy generator.  This manifestation crystal is energising and promotes creative thought.  Citrine activates the Crown Chakra and opens the connection to ones higher self, which stimulates intuition.

It resonates beautifully with all other Chakra initiating alignment and boosting Kundalini, also particularly good for the Solar Plexus Chakra as it creates a driving force propelling one to achieve goals.

Citrine teaches how to manifest wealth, prosperity and success by dissolving the illusion of mental blocks, annihilating fear of failure.  Helps reduce resistance to life creating a go with the flow attitude and understanding of one’s infinite self.  Citrine is excellent at neutralising negative energy and protecting the aura.  Cleanses other crystals and never needs cleansing as it absorbs, transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy.

Citrine is a wonderful transformation stone and solid companion while traversing the cycle of life.  Meditating with Citrine massively strengthens the Earth anchor, which enables one to better articulate divine information.  Great for healers and psychics due to its fabulous energy expansion abilities.
