If you're one who collects stones, you know what Citrine is. For those who do not know, Citrine is a transparent, yellow variety of Quartz ranging in color from pale to golden yellow, honey or almost brown. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C.
I have several stones, mostly ruby and topaz, but not a Citrine until Steph Lopez gave me her creation, a handmade wire bangle with Citrine!
Carrying the power of the sun, Citrine is energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind, awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is a stone that attracts abundance and manifestation, success and all things good. It also encourages generosity and sharing good fortune, improves interactions for all who work in marketing, sales, banking, sports and the media. It is a fortifying crystal for healers, and increases productivity in governmental work. Citrine is an excellent crystal for interpersonal relationships, it helps smooths family or group problems, it attracts love and happiness, and guards against those who would break your heart.
