Citrine is a type of quartz. Its color ranges from pale yellow to brown due to iron compounds inside. Natural citrines are rare! Most commercial citrines are not really citrines at all, but are instead amethyst/smoky quartz that have been baked with heat and look orange. A heat-treated amethyst will have small lines within. A real citrine’s appearance is cloudy.
Citrine is a powerful spiritual cleanser, and can assist in removing destructive behavior and accepting criticisms in order to ultimately achieve your goals. It is very protective and aids in transmuting & removing negative energy. It is also considered to be the best crystal for manifesting your dreams.
Use with Manifestation
Citrine is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, which is known as the Power Chakra. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the energy vortex located above your belly button and below your heart. This vortex is what fuels your intentions.
- Try meditating with a piece of citrine on or near your Solar Plexus Chakra, while focusing on your intentions to manifest the life you want.
- Keep a piece of citrine in your hand as you write your intentions. If you’d like, recite the mantra, “My life is filled with abundance. I am filled with positivity and I let go of all negativity.” Once finished, keep the citrine on top of the paper until the intentions manifest.
Citrine has been referred to as the “Merchant’s Stone” because of its ability to attract money and wealth. This may be attributed to its natural ability to heighten self-discipline and willpower. To try it yourself, place a piece of citrine in a cash box/drawer in the south east of any room, home, or office which is the universal “wealth corner” according to Feng Shui.
