Properties of Citrine
Most citrine gemstones on the market today are heat-treated amethysts and most natural citrine is full of inclusions, so citrine like this -- totally natural and untreated, water-clear and gemstone quality -- is increasingly rare.
Citrine is a powerful semi-precious stone which is a rare, more energetically powerful form of amethyst, characterized by a yellow color, ranging from white to deep copper. It is less common in nature than amethyst but both are found in quartz veins, as well as volcanic locations.
The color of citrine derives from small amounts (approximately 40 parts per million) of iron in the quartz. The difference between citrine and amethyst is only the oxidation state of the iron present in the quartz. Citrine typically is formed when an amethyst becomes heated and pressurized to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
This powerful citrine gemstone is an ideal piece to wear for beauty, protection and assisting in our connection to our Higher Self & the Divine.
Metaphysically, citrine combines the energy of the Yellow and the Golden Rays, activating the solar plexus chakra and the crown chakra respectively.
Working on the third chakra, which is the solar plexus chakra, associated in the Western mystery school tradition with the color yellow, citrine strengthens the bearer's energy system and infuses the "hara" center and solar plexus with Universal Life Force Energy, also known as "chi" or "prana" in the Chinese and Hindu systems of energy medicine.
Citrine is said to aid in digestion, which is governed by the third chakra, and to activate the thymus, which regulates our immune system, thus promoting health and well-being. In addition, citrine is said to provide a feeling of comfort and optimism. I must admit, that when I wear or work with citrine, I have a great sense of well being and protection.
Working on the seventh, or crown chakra, which is associated with the colors violet, gold and white in the Western mystery school traditions, citrine opens the gateway to Higher Mind, strengthening the energetic connection between the personality and the Higher Self, and helping us to achieve conscious awareness of our Higher Purpose in everything we do and say throughout our busy lives.
In addition, citrine is an ideal gemstone for protection. Used to strengthen the aura and surround the bearer in a bubble of golden light, citrine provides the bearer with a safe, secure personal space, free from the interference of negative or unwanted individual or collective thoughtforms, deleterious emotional states projected by others, and even inasuspicious astrological influences, which can be literally burned away when they encounter such a strong golden aura as heliodor helps to create.
In our experience, citrine cleanses the emotional and etheric bodies, and stimulates the holder’s vital energies and physical body. It imparts a strong sense of protection if worn on the body or placed in a room where energy work takes place or groups gather.
Used in energy healing, citrine is said to transmit the golden light of unity consciousness, which is tuned to the very highest vibrations of an open eighth chakra -- the chakra above the crown of the head, said by the Western New Age chakra system to be the location of the Higher Self.
When we (Curtis Lang & Jane Sherry, Satya Center founders) have used citrine in Reiki and crystal energy sessions with clients, they have reported feeling a gloden glow around them. We have also found that citrine is a powerful tool for extracting negative energies, gently dissolving energy blocks, and releasing negative emotions during sessions.
We often use crystal pendants for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
