Citrine, a pale yellow to brownish-orange quartz, is a gem for envisioning and pursuing goals. Natural Citrine is rare and typically expensive because of it. Most of the Citrine on today’s market is heat treated Amethyst.
Citrine is said to bring happiness and joy to those who wear it. It has been called the “merchant stone” since it’s thought to attract prosperity and abundance into one’s life. It has a positive energy that helps one envision their goals by sparking the imagination and strengthening will power. Citrine teaches us how to appreciate what we have and find joy in each facet of our lives.
Please note: For those who have a quick temper, or are prone to gossip, Citrine may exacerbate these qualities and, therefore, should use it with caution. Like Rose Quartz, Citrine can fade in sunlight.
