Science & Origin of Citrine
Citrine is the term given to a yellowish/orange type of Quartz that has Iron impurities. It can be found crystallised in any form in which Quartz can be found. Its name is derived from the Greek word o, which translates to Citron. Citrine from the Minas Geras region of Brazil is the most famous in the world, followed by Sri Lanka and India. Beautiful specimens have recently been discovered in Madagascar. However, this crystal can be found almost anywhere.
Energy & Meaning
Citrine is a master of the creativity centre, which contains some of our most powerful manifesting forces. This area has long been seen to be the key to unlocking not only our will but also our deepest desires. Citrine's energy has no limitations when one is sincerely yearning for a shift or a spark of inventiveness. Grasping this stone daily and letting the cosmos know what you want will multiply its energies tenfold. It's not just about wishing or thinking; it's about focusing and acting. Citrine activates our root chakra, which helps us to manifest our deepest aspirations. We all want change, but not everyone is prepared to work for it.
