Citrine is the prized golden member of the Quartz family. It occurs naturally, most notably in Congo and Zambia, Africa, and also in Brazil. Sometimes it can form in with Smokey quartz, and Amethyst (Ametrine).
Due to it being the most valuable member of the quartz family, sometimes cheap and poor grade amethyst is heat treated to create a deep orange-gold colour. This material is widely available on the market, and is also sold under the name Citrine.
At Nature’s Magick, we endeavour to predominantly stock natural Citrine, however at times gemstones set in jewellery may have had heat applied to enhance a Citrine’s colour to be a darker golden colour. When we purchase Citrine marked as natural, we will call it “natural”.
Natural Citrine’s powerful positive energy is what makes it so attractive! A stone of Abundance, success, and an enhancer of personal power, Citrine can empower our manifestation abilities to help us attract what we need and desire as it opens and strengthens the solar plexus chakra. It also assists us to awaken our intuition, imagination and creativity, as it brings in a stream of sunshine-like clearing energy that can help us release negative thoughts and feel motivated, joyful and much more positive about life! Simply looking at citrine can bestow one with feelings of happiness, as its bright golden colour and frequency enters ours.
Natural Citrine is one of the few crystals that are considered “self-cleansing” i.e. they don’t store negative energy, and keep putting out those positive vibes!
Citrine placed in the back left corner of one’s home or of a room (the wealth corner, according to Feng Shui) can enhance prosperity and abundance.
