Citrine:  "A Ray of Sunshine"

Citrine: "A Ray of Sunshine"

Citrine is a member of the Quartz family, and it varies in colour from pale yellow to deep orange.  It's like a ray of sunshine, lifting our spirits and lightening up our energy field.

Citrine does not hold and accumulate negative energy, but dissipates and transmutes it, consequently it never needs clearing or cleansing. 


It clears and expands the mind to learning new ideas.  It literally strengthens the electrical flow in the brain itself, assisting it to create new connections and thought patterns and extending those thoughts out into the universe.  Citrine helps us get clear on what we want to create and instils in us the self-confidence and personal will to assert ourselves.  While also strengthening the 3rd chakra, giving us the energy and perseverance to see our creation through to its manifestation.

Over the years it has come to be known as the “Merchant’s Stone”, as shopkeepers would place a Citrine stone or cluster in their cash box to bring more income to the store.  Having said that, it is not only a stone for acquiring wealth, but also for maintaining it.

It is most beneficial for groups, as it will act like a sword as it cuts through problems, while opening to solutions.  Citrine will also assist in setting proper emotional boundaries and in clearly maintaining them.  It is a great stone for people who can’t say “no”!

Citrine is good for weight loss as it supports the endocrine system and balances the metabolism. It also enhances physical stamina and energy.  It relieves emotional distress including suicidal tendencies.  Citrine supports the heart, kidneys, liver, and muscles.  It also stimulates the regeneration of red and white blood cells, aids in digestion, blood circulation and visual abilities. It balances the thyroid, activates the thymus and removes toxins from the body.

The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon.  It was used as a gem in Greece dating back as far as 300 BC.  Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst.  Deposits of natural Citrine can be found in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and the USA.

So how about bringing a ray of sunshine into your life!?

In joy & light,
