Citrine is a variety of quartz. Its colour ranges form light yellow to golden brown to amber. The stone is often heat-treated to brighten the yellow colour. Enhanced Citrine works as well metaphysically as naturally coloured stones, and is often preferred for aesthetic or colour-therapy uses.
Citrine is one of two stones that never needs cleansing because it transmutes and dissipates negative energy. (The other stone is Kyanite.) This property makes it excellent at easing stress and reducing tensions between people.
Citrine helps to bring and maintain wealth, balances yin-yang energy, and aligns the chakras. It also allows for clarification of problems related to the intellect and emotion.
Citrine is associated with the Solar Plexus and navel chakras, and the Zodiac signs Aries, Gemini, Leo and Libra. It is also one of the birthstones for November, along with Yellow Topaz.
