Crystal Of The Month - Citrine

Another beautiful gem that hails from the Quartz family, Citrine is November's Crystal Of The Month!

Citrine is a gorgeous crystal. Along with Amethyst, Citrine is one of the minerals that people are first attracted to when they begin their work with the crystal kingdom.

And it's not hard to see why! Citrine has a sunny, bright energy that supports those who work with it on so many levels. It is a crystal of abundance, joy and manifestation. It helps us to open up to our true happiness and understand that our innate state of being is one of joy and bliss.

There are two types of Citrine on the market today. The most common type of Citrine has that bright, sparkly yellow hue - this variety is actually heat treated Amethyst. Natural Citrine is becoming more available these days and has a deep, smoky, yellow tone to it.

There are many thoughts on the heat treated Amethyst varieties. Personally, I find this crystal to be just as lovely as natural Citrine. These gems both do wonderful work, they just have slightly different energies from one another.

Let's get into the beautiful healing properties of Citrine:

"Natural Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.

Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy, but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed...

Worn, carried, or used in crystal healing, the radiant yellow color will increase the amount of light surrounding the body and protect the aura. It is also a good talisman to have in situations where one needs to feel confident and secure." (Crystal Vaults)

"Citrine Crystals are a variety of quartz and are closely related to Amethyst. Many of the stones on the market are created from Amethyst Crystals by heat treatment. Although it is believed that this process does not actually damage the stone, the heat treated stones have different qualities to the natural genuine Citrine crystals...

The Citrine properties that are most well known are its value for aiding manifestation of prosperity, particularly if you combine it with the power of affirmations. By its ability to activate the solar plexus, the seat of the will, it will help you to be decisive about what you will bring into your life...
