Citrine has been a staple in any avid crystal collector’s collection for thousands of years and used to be treasured for its rarity. That’s not to say it’s not treasured now. It is, but spotted a little more commonly (lucky for us!).
It’s a bright stone, bursting with energy, that’s known to help clear the mind. It’s name is derived from the Greek word for citrus. But don’t be fooled, it’s here to help and definitely more sweet than sour. Fun fact: it’s actually a variation of Quartz.
There’s two types of Citrine:
- Heat treated: This is formed when purple amethyst is heat treated.
- Natural: This is harder to come by, but by far our favourite - you can’t beat mother nature. And, we just got our hands on some - in stock now..be quick (don’t say we didn’t warn you). Check them out here.
Why are Citrine clusters so popular?
We could go on for pages on the mystical powers of Citrine, but we know you’re busy. To name just a few...
1. Citrine helps manifest abundance and prosperity
Citrine is associated with the solar plexus chakra. If you want to attract abundance and pursue your goals, Citrine helps motivate you and increase your mental awareness. This way, you’ll be more in tune with yourself and ready to take on the world.
2. Citrine can help relieve fear and anxiety
Commonly dubbed the “feel better stone” Citrine can help calm you when you’re overwhelmed with anxiety. Fear and anxiety can stop you being the best you that you can be. Citrine helps you take the reins back and power through life.
Plus, if you’re lacking self-assurance when starting a new project or business - Citrine will help put all your fears to bed. Say goodnight and goodbye to the monsters in your head.
3. Citrine crystals unleash your creativity
One thing people constantly struggle with is creativity. Sometimes, you feel a total block and it feels like there’s no escape. We’ve got good news. Crystals are the missing puzzle piece to bring your creative mojo back to the surface, so you can truly flourish.
Reach for your Citrine crystal when you want to release blockages and set your creativity wild. Paint ‘til your heart’s content, grab a cup of tea and journal, or venture into nature to take some photos. Citrine is your new best friend.
