Citrine: Healing Properties & Practical Uses

Citrine: Healing Properties & Practical Uses

Citrine is a form of Quartz and it gets its color from traces of iron. Citrine can be found all over the world and is commonly mined in Brazil, Spain, Russia, Madagascar, Bolivia, and Argentina. 

Natural Citrine can range in color from almost clear to very deep orange but it is usually light yellow and transparent - think the color of lemonade. 


Citrine is a crystal that radiates positivity. It attracts abundance, so use it to manifest prosperity, success, and good vibes. It promotes joy, invigorates you, and raises your self-confidence.

Citrine is connected to your lower chakras. While most commonly associated with the Solar Plexus, it is also connected to the Sacral chakra. These chakras work with the energy and emotions of creativity, sensuality, self-confidence, and your personal power.

Natural Citrine enhances physical stamina and energy, supports the endocrine system, and encourages proper metabolism. It stimulates the digestive system and balances the thyroid. 


Citrine can be cleansed using water, smudging, salt baths, other crystals such as Clear Quartz or Selenite, and moonlight. If cleansing your citrine jewelry, avoid water, not because of damaging the stones but to make sure the stretch materials will last as long as possible!


In Feng Shui, the far left corner of your home (when viewed from the front door) is the wealth corner. Place citrine in that corner to attract financial blessings. 

Meditate with citrine to increase your self-confidence and guide you into healthier routines. 

Wear citrine to have a joyful day.


Citrine is a tricky crystal to buy because a lot of the stones on the market are not natural citrine, but rather heat treated Amethyst. This produces the much darker deeper orange colors. Smoky Quartz can also be heat treated to produce lighter yellow colors of Citrine. There is a lot of debate in the crystal world about whether these are "real". In my opinion, they are very much real crystals. I mean they were purple amethyst or brown smoky quartz at one point. And they have their own unique metaphysical properties. But, I don't think its right to sell it as Citrine, and certainly not marked "natural citrine" when it is not.
