The staff at my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:
Citrine is a yellow to brown form of quartz, with most pieces a golden yellow that’s reminiscent of topaz. It forms naturally when trace amounts of iron are trapped in quartz, as it crystallizes. This is the same process that forms amethyst; the only difference is that citrine forms under higher temperature. In fact, most citrine available commercially is made by heating amethyst, as naturally occurring citrine is rare.
Citrine is the “Merchant’s Stone,” because it is associated with success and prosperity. Older references are rare because it’s been confused with topaz until relatively recent times, but this use has been consistent. Citrine has been associated with the solar plexus chakra. It aids healing throughout the digestive system, and aids metabolism in general. For example, even though the thyroid gland is typically associated with the throat chakra because of its position, healers may use citrine to enhance its function.
