There are two types of Citrine on the market:

The first, most common variety is heat-treated in order to obtain a bright golden yellow, orange or brown color. Heat-treated or "enhanced" Citrine is a very popular and useful stone. The intensity of the color brings an additional intensity to the stone itself. For more information on heated, treated and man-made crystals, see this article: Heated, Treated and Man-Made Crystals

The second type of Citrine is natural Citrine. This Citrine has not been enhanced in any way; in fact, it is the same color as it was coming out of the mine. Natural Citrine, which has a pale, golden to smoky color, is not as abundant as its "enhanced" counterpart. Natural Citrine provides for powerful healing on many different levels and carries a cleaner, smoother vibration.

Sunny Citrine has a joyful vibration that transmits outward to those nearby, making it ideal for any setting. Working with Citrine can help one to overcome depression, release anger, and learn effective communication skills. Citrine can activate one's imagination, bringing more creative visions to a clearer mind. It can enhance one's optimism in any situation, bringing a more positive outlook into the conscious and subconscious mind, which allows one to step into the flow of things with better results.  Citrine is often credited with attracting synchronicity by opening the mind to new ideas, discerning which are most likely to succeed, allowing those to develop, and following through with them to their happy conclusion.

Powered by the Sun, Citrine warms, cleanses, and energizes. Highly protective, Citrine makes a great tool for transmuting negative energy. Citrine heightens self-discipline, attracting professional success and wealth. Most often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, Citrine can also be used to cleanse all Chakras. Citrine will help support the energy of a family environment at work or at home.

Physically, Citrine can support and enhance healing for the spine, the digestive and elimination organs, and the metabolism. Citrine can facilitate detoxification and stimulate circulation. Often used for chronic fatigue, Citrine has a reputation of being able to increase energy and drive. This property can also help those who are trying to lose weight, by encouraging one to be optimistic about achieving their goals.

Please Note: Although Citrine may not need clearing/cleansing as often as most crystals, we suggest clearing your Citrine as often as is needed, based on:

  1. The amount of use it gets (how hard your crystal is working for you) and
  2. The amount of energy that your crystal has been exposed to over a period of time.

When clearing your crystals, always make sure that your intent is clearly stated, so the crystal knows that it is being given some time off and needs to recharge itself. For more information see this article: How to Clear/Clean Any of Your Crystals.
