About: Even though the name citrine is derived from the Latin word for yellow, it is a variety of quartz crystal that can range from yellow to brown in colour. Like all quartz it is made from a continuous framework of SiO4. Naturally occurring citrine is rare and most commercial citrine is heat treated amethyst or smoky quartz. Most natural citrine comes from Rio Grade Do Sul, a state in Brazil.
Metaphysical: Because of its yellow colour, citrine is thought to carry the power of the sun and thus be a very powerful stone for manifesting, imagining, and personal will. This is a stone of abundance and is occasionally referred to as the merchant’s stone.
Natural citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy. Further, it is said to have the power to transmute and dissipate negative energy and emotions. It can awaken creativity and assist in bringing our dreams and intangible desires into the tangible realm.
Why you should wear this stone: We include citrine in our solar plexus chakra collection because of its manifesting and transmutational qualities. The solar plexus chakra is all about abundance and confidence. This is the chakra center that one focuses on to bring increased wealth, both financial and spiritual, into ones life.
When your solar plexus chakra is out of balance self doubt can creep in and ideas of self worth diminish. This is why citrine is such an important stone to assist with balancing this chakra center. It takes those negative energies and thoughts and dissipates them or transmutes them into positive and reaffirming energies. When you align your solar plexus chakra with citrine you get the support of a manifesting stone, and when we have confidence to manifest we have confidence to achieve our dreams.
