More About Citrine:

Healing Properties of CitrineCitrine is a yellow to golden brown form of quartz, with most pieces a golden yellow that’s reminiscent of topaz. It forms naturally when trace amounts of lithium and aluminum are trapped in quartz, as it crystallizes. This is the same process that forms all colored quartz; the only differences being the trace minerals involved and the geologic conditions and temperatures the Quartz is exposed to. In fact, most citrine available commercially is made by heating amethyst (which takes its color from iron molecules), as naturally occurring citrine is rare.

Healing Properties of CitrineCitrine is known as the “Merchant’s Stone,” because it is associated with success and prosperity. Older references are rare because it was confused with topaz until relatively recent times, but this use has been consistent. Citrine has historically been used to aid ailments of the digestive system.

    Dear Ashley, It still amazes Me how the Universe brings to Me exactly what I require when I require it. Today it was your email with the podcast on Citrine. I so so needed this & hopefully it will help 1 of My Dear Friends too. Bless You & the Crystals too. I am very grateful.

    Hi Ashley, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.
    I heard you say that you put your citrine in a red pouch?
    My understanding (read and heard it on many other occasions) that if you want to stop a crystal vibrate you cover it with red?
    Love & Light Hayet

      Hi Hayet! Thanks so much for listening 🙂 Ashley uses a red pouch as it’s used in Feng Shui for prosperity. Personally we don’t feel that red pouches help much with stopping a crystal from vibrating– we find darker colors like black and brown to be much more effective at shielding. Crystal blessings! <3

    Great information, thank you. I had no idea this crystal is also associated with Virgo and works on the solar plexus/crown chakra. This crystal has been calling out to me for a very long time, I guess it has something to teach me.

    1. Cortney Love & Light Support on February 3, 2022 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you so much for this today, I was just told that my contract will end in March (as it was for 6 months) and you arrived in my inbox, thank you for giving me courage to start over again, I have a beautiful piece citrine calcite my daughter bought me for Christmas, it has a shiny copper look to it with pyramid edges, what is the best way to charge this crystal and keep it on me please for financial abundance and spiritual growth, Blessings x PS I am feeling a great warmth from my crystal in my hand what does this mean please

    1. Cortney Love & Light Support on February 18, 2022 at 3:18 pm

      Hi Salma! Love it when synchronicity gives us a helpful nudge in the right direction! For charging, one of my personal favorites is to charge with the moon. You can place the crystal outdoors, on the ground is preferable, or in a windowsill where the moonlight will shine on the stone. Each moon phase brings different elements to the charge, for abundance, I recommend charging with the full moon since it’s connected to abundance, wholeness, completion, dreams, intuition, achievement, flow, manifestation, power, protection, and manifestation. Or for spiritual growth maybe charge with the waxing crescent moon since it brings positive energy, enhances intuition, balances emotions, enhances manifesting, strengthens personal power, promotes progress, and enhances wisdom and knowledge. Crystal Blessings! <3

      Hi Julie, that’s awesome you were able to mine for some in the Smokey Mountains! What an amazing experience! <3
