History/Mythology – The word Citrine was used to describe many different yellow coloured stones up until the sixteenth century, at which time the name was then assigned to yellow quartz only.
There are many types of crystals that fall into the Quartz family however the five main ones are:
- Clear Quartz – clear to milk in colour and can have inclusions
- Smoky Quartz – light brown to dark brown-black in colour
- Citrine – yellow to orange in colour and can have a green ting
- Rose Quartz – pink to lavender in colour
- Amethyst – mainly purple however colour ranges from white to black and it can also be found in green
Metaphysical Healing Properties: Citrine is the stone of Abundance and has a wonderfully sunny energy. Citrine is a very powerful cleanser and re-generator and will assist in clearing away old patterns and help to build new ones. It is a strong energizing stone and will enhance your creative side as well as opening up your intuition. It also helps teach us how to manifest prosperity in our lives, by showing us all that is good and how we can enjoy it and share it with those around us. Citrine helps us to rebuild our self-confidence and overcome fear, then to relax and go with the flow of the situation.
Working with Citrine is like having sunshine in your belly. It raises your self-confidence and allows you to be all you can be and achieve all you can. This is one of my first pick stones if someone is feeling low. Affirmation: I have sun in my belly and I embrace and accept all that life gives me with joy and abundance.
Question: What stones make you feel energetic?
Baked and natural stone – I am often asked the question over the differences between Natural and Baked Citrine here is my response. I find that natural citrine has a very similar vibration to baked Citrine it is just a lot more intense due to the time it took to be created. You have the same makeup in both stones, bake Citrine has just been fast-tracked to get there were as Natural Citrine has happened over a long period of time. I very much enjoy working with Natural Citrine because of its intense clear vibration but have worked with both over the years due to the cost factor.
