Top 3 Benefits of Citrine

  1. One of the best stones to help you manifest your ideas into physical form
  2. Strengthens your willpower & sense of personal strength to overcome obstacles
  3. Helps dissolve any blocks to feeling you deserve abundance & success

Citrine is a classic manifesting stone. It activates your creativity and imagination and fortifies your willpower to see your creation through into real-world success. This makes it one of the best stones out there to help you see a creative project through to fruition.

Citrine is a high-energy, happy stone that is great to carry through the winter.

Natural citrine is often found mixed with smoky quartz and called “smoky citrine”. This combination brings in smoky quartz’s purifying properties and helps clear and balance your first chakra. This helps resolve any issues you may have with feeling you deserve to have what you want to create.

Citrine Mineral & Gemstone Information

Citrine is a yellow variety of quartz. Natural citrine is fairly rare and much of the citrine you see on the market is heat-treated amethyst or smoky quartz, which are more common versions of quartz.

Natural citrine tends to be a translucent pale champagne or smoky color and the same color throughout, whereas heat-treated citrine tends to be a darker amber to bright orange at the tips and opaque white below. Heat-treated citrine is less expensive than natural citrine.

Is Heat-treated Citrine “Fake”?

Natural citrine is technically also created by heating other forms of quartz, although it is done by geo-thermal heat rather than in a lab. Most crystal workers report that natural and heat-treated citrine have slightly different energy signatures, but share many of the same healing properties. Experiment to find what works for you!
