Information and properties
Citrine is a warm, cheerful and protective stone. Citrine is also a strong purifying stone and therefore seems to have a beneficial effect on bladder and kidney infections. Citrine also affects the digestive system and organs such as the spleen, pancreas, stomach and intestines. Besides a purifying effect Citrine is also characterized by the enormous energy that the stone gives. It is therefore a very suitable stone for people who suffer from burnout or fatigue.
The warm and sunny energy helps people with depression, sadness, fears and phobias. Citrine makes you enjoy life again and has a positive effect on self-confidence and creativity. It invites you to take action and to chase your dreams again.
On a spiritual level Citrine protects the aura and cleanses the chakras. It particularly affects the Solar Plexus Chakra and Sacral Chakra. It is a stone that helps you to accept yourself as you really are. Citrine makes you aware of the big picture and makes you alert.
Real Citrine is a somewhat rare and precious gemstone and usually has a bright light yellow smoky color. Often Amethyst is heated causing the Amethyst to turn yellowish. This heated Amethyst is then often sold as Citrine for a soft price. Although the burnt Amethyst energetically comes close to real Citrine, it is not a real Citrine and it should be mentioned that this is a processed and burnt Amethyst.
