Citrine Crystal Meaning & Metaphysical Healing Properties

Citrine is a stone that radiates positivity and happiness. It is known as the "success stone" because it is said to promote success, good fortune, and abundance. This is the best crystal to boost those manifestations if you have intentions that involve achieving success in financial or business ventures. 

Citrine is a power crystal that increases mental clarity and boosts one's ability to manifest desires. The crystal is also an aura protector; it acts as an early warning system so that action can be taken to protect oneself.

What is Citrine? 

Citrine is a variety of quartz that ranges in colour from pale yellow to golden brown. Its name comes from the French word for lemon, "citron." This crystal is a powerful stone for manifestation, so you can also use it in your crystal grids and meditation practices to help manifest your desires.

Citrine carries the sun’s power, making it warming, energising and highly creative.  The stone absorbs, transmutes, dissipates, and grounds negative energy, therefore highly protective of the environment.

Where is Citrine From?

Citrine is found in many countries worldwide, including Brazil, Madagascar, Russia, France, Britain and the United States. Our Citrine is sourced from Brazil, which produces the highest quality Citrine.

It should be noted that, unfortunately, a large majority of ‘Citrine’ on the market is not natural Citrine but rather heat-treated Amethyst. When buying Citrine, you need to make sure you know what you're buying. General rule; If it seems cheap, it’s more than likely heat-treated Amethyst.

At The Crystal Company, we only sell natural crystals; the same goes for our Citrine.

You always want to make sure you are buying your crystals from reputable shops, as some sellers are not so honest or unaware that the ‘Citrine’ they are selling isn’t actually Citrine.

We wanted to point this out to our crystal family to ensure you are all educated about what you are buying and the risks of purchasing Citrine.
