Crystal Spotlight Yellow Citrine

What Is Yellow Citrine

Citrine is the yellow to orange variety of Quartz. ... It takes a relatively low temperature to change the color light to golden yellow, and heating to higher temperatures will give the stone a darker yellow to brownish-red color. The name Citrine is derived from the citron fruit, a yellow fruit similar to the lemon.

Citrine is quartz made up of two of the most common materials on earth, silicon and oxygen. Citrine, like its sister quartz, amethyst, is found inside geodes all over the world. What is a geode? A geode is formed by bubbles trapped within volcanic rock or lava. The outer rock hardens, often in a circular or oval shape leaving an empty space inside. This hollow is filled over millions of years by liquids rich in silicon dioxide (and in the case of citrine, elements of iron) that slowly crystallize into the quartzes we all love today. These geodes can range from a few centimeters in diameter to one big enough for two or three people to climb inside!

Spiritual Benefits

Citrine is said to open all seven chakras and open the window of intuition. For so many, our intuition has been dulled down due to all of the programming in the world. Or for so many, we ignore that "gut" feeling and just move forward with what we think we should be doing. Citrine opens up that sense and allows you to connect with your true self. Furthermore, Citrine promotes motivation and stimulates your brain which gives strength to the intellect.

To boost your Solar Plexus Chakra, place a citrine gemstone on the upper abdomen, lie down in a relaxed atmosphere, visualize the color of your citrine and soak up the serenity. At the end of the session you can cleanse the citrine in a sea salt and water solution and allow them to dry in the sunlight or moonlight.
