“Citrine is fresh, vibrant and citrusy…"
Citrine is any quartz crystal or cluster that is yellow or orange in colour. Although often cut as a gemstone, citrine is actually somewhat rare in nature. Most citrine on the market has been heat treated. Much of the natural citrine may have started out as amethyst but heat from nearby magmatic bodies may have caused the change to citrine.
There are many positive attributes of the citrine stone as it is believed to be a tonic for the circulatory system, helping cleanse the blood. Citrine gives energy and invigoration to the physical body. It is useful to people who are sensitive to environmental and other outside influences. It is also the birthstone for November.
Citrine is believed to be of value in healing and carries the virtues of self-healing, inspiration and self-improvement. Carrying the power of the sun, it is excellent for overcoming depression, fears and phobias. Wearing a citrine gemstone assists you to remain calm in the most challenging of situations.
