Glossary of Stones

  • Citrine

    Citrine, or yellow quartz, forms from a deep honey yellow to almost colorless. Citrine derives it’s color from colloidal iron hydrates within the quartz (Si02) solution. Citrine grows in Brazil, Uruguay, China and Africa.

    Associated with the Third Chakra for mental clarity, Citrine is comforting, warm and energizing and can alleviate self-destruction by supporting higher consciousness and a strong personality. Citrine supports any mental projects, so it is a great stone to use during a test or serious studies. It helps maintain concentration by supporting a clear and focused mental condition. Citrine can also be placed at the Crown Chakra as connection to the God-Consciousness. Use this stone during meditation to help clear away the mental chatter.

    Citrine is a major stone to use for creating abundance. Its cheerful yellow color is associated with the gold and prosperity. Carry it in your wallet or purse, or even place it in your pocket next to your change to manifest personal riches.

    Citrine can help remove toxins and may be used with medications to alleviate some side effects. This stone, because it associates with the Third Chakra, is useful with all the digestive organs (stomach, liver, gallbladder, large and small intestines) and can be a stimulant to digestion and for an upset stomach. It will also support the adrenals.
