Should Heat Treated Citrine Be Used As Citrine Or Amethyst?

Hello! I am very connected with healing crystals right now, as this is the fourth time syncronicity has happened in the last month. I am wondering about using my heat treated Citrine and here y'all posted an article about it today! My question is should the heat treated Citrine be used as Citrine, Amethyst, or in some other way? Thank you for your wonderful site and guidance.




Hi L: 

I am so glad that you enjoyed Stephanie's article on Treated Crystals and found it valuable. 

As Stephanie mentions, Heat Treated Citrine is often Amethyst that has been altered to a bright yellow Citrine crystal.  Amethyst and Citrine are both high vibrational quartz crystals with very similar properties and healing qualities.  Often with crystals from the same family it can be the color of the crystal that suggests their healing properties. Amethyst is purple so it connects to the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and purple is a color associated with intuition and mental/psychic abilities like imagination and dreams. Citrineis Yellow and connects with the Solar Plexus Chakra that has more of an earthy/grounding vibration.  Yellow is about instinct, mood and the positive strength of the Sun.  My advice is to use your heat treated Citrineas you would any Citrine, and know that it has the advantage of carrying some of the energy of an Amethyst.

Thank you for reaching out to us and for your support of Healing  I hope that I have been able to help and that you will not hesitate to contact me with any other questions.

Wishing you lots of Love and Light!

Crystal Blessings!
