Citrine -- Metaphysical Properties, Affirmations, & Chakras


Citrine is a silicon dioxide mineral, a member of the Quartz group with a hardness of 7. Citrines crystal system is trigonal, and its yellow pigmentation is derived from iron. Natural Citrines can vary in shade from a very pale yellow to deep amber, with some specimens exhibiting brownish/greenish tinges. Citrine comes from the French word citron, translated means lemon, and was used as a gemstone in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and was used for jewelry and intaglios in Ancient Greek and Rome through the first and second centuries A.D. Nowadays, so much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst. This color is very noticeable as it is the deeper amber and orangish shades are heat treated. As a result, natural Citrines are mostly a pale yellowish chartreuseish color. Natural Citrine is mined in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland, and the USA.

Citrine is one of the best stones for opening up creativity and imagination while also enhancing willpower. The stone is used to awaken these powers in even those who are living unconsciously!
Citrine is a gem with an ethereal and soothing glow. It improves the flow of energy in your body while also boosting creativity, self-confidence, personal willpower, and mental clarity. Citrine energizes all three chakras: it activates the first chakra (base) for grounding; strengthens communication between 3rd eye/mind's conscious thoughts to 2nd heart or emotional feelings; clears away any blockages within lower back & sacral area that might have developed from past trauma like traumas- this can be especially helpful if you're doing Reiki healing on yourself!
Citrine has been used by masters such as Leonardo Da Vinci for increased inspiration when creating artworks like "The Mona Lisa."

Imagination is the necessary ingredient for creativity. In a world where time moves forward in one direction, we are limited to only what has been and can be duplicated endlessly again. The power of imagination opens up new possibilities that have not yet existed or even occurred to us through cognitive capabilities such as consciousness or empathy with others' experiences. In both natural and heated forms, Citrine is a gemstone that stimulates imagination through three charkas- the second, third and sixth chakras. The vibratory frequency of Citrine activates and harmonizes these three energy portals, all which are necessary to the process of creative imagination.



Citrine has been long used for its ability to stimulate creativity in those who wear it or keep it close by due to its high vibration level relative other stones with similar properties such as garnet or amethyst. It does so by activating one's "second", "third" (a term usually referring here) and sixth chakra(s). These correspond respectively with our intuitive sense; our higher mind/creativity center; self worth but also life force power at this time on Earth. These energized pathways allow for thinking processes activation as well as mental clarity enhancement so one can use their visionary function (the 6th eye) where inner images appear. Through the sixth chakra-the third eye-Citrine activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity and the visionary function through which inner images appear. Citrine is the crystal that creates new images and ideas. Citrine stimulates creativity, which in turn generates inventions. It's no surprise that this gemstone helps with sexual energy as it's both an imaginal conception (like a thought) and biological conception (like having sex). The solar plexus chakra produces human dynamos of personal will while also enabling us to be inspired by nature; these are tools needed for outstanding accomplishments! One's will is the impetus to make one's creative ideas come to fruition. This energy can be strengthened by Citrine, which supports the third chakra and allows for a more true manifestation of your creativity in reality.

Citrine works synergistically with many stones, and one can choose combinations based on their needs to add (or multiply) additional energy. Some people may wish for a little more fire while others might need something that calms them down - the choice is yours! Golden Rutile, Honey Labradorite, and Golden Healer Quartz add power to the third chakra, the seat of the personal will. For extra emphasis on the creative function, Fire Quartz, Red Garnet are excellent choices. For enhancing the visionary process, Kyanite, Kunzite, and Moonstone are ideal allies. Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Scolecite, and/or Green Rutile Quartz can be of great assistance to bring in more spiritual energies from higher realms.

The earths plane is where we experience our physical reality, but it's not without surprises. So much of the mystery and intrigue in our lives comes from a process called manifestation - an attempt to transform dreams into tangibility to make them an actual reality. Citrine can help us manifest with their strong second chakra energy that stimulates creativity and will and brings energy into form.

Citrine is a stone of manifestation. Citrine brings to life all that we desire by opening us up fully the power and love from Divine Will, reminding us again and again that we are supported in our efforts for manifestation. When one chooses this path with intention, it becomes clear just how much difference there truly is between heat-treated Citrine commonly found on markets as opposed to natural smoky golden Citrines; which resonate more deeply with their energy field because they were never tampered with or processed at high enough heats like those produced when creating orange-yellow crystals too common today's marketplaces across America. Both stones have very different energies depending upon what was done during processing: human-controlled heat-treated versus unheated/processed then cooled naturally over time without any human interference.



Natural Citrine carries a powerful frequency that allows for the clearing and strengthening of one's manifestation channel. Its purifying properties are enhanced by its natural Smoky Quartz energy, combined with stimulating Fire element energy it possesses. The phantoms in Natural Citrine allow people to connect with Higher Self to focus on manifesting those creations aligned most closely to their highest good while also meditating through this stone's stimulation of first-third chakras (root-, navel-, solar plexus). These are the points at which high-frequency energies of emotional and spiritual planes manifest into the lower frequency realm of physicality. In other words, these chakras are where energy becomes tangible.
For this reason, they're powerful in one's energy system for manifestation and creation work and being a focal point to experience blocks towards that goal due to lack of deserving what we want or taking the initiative with it. These areas have more to do with our needs: needing something or lacking very much without having anything given back from those wants/needs fulfilled when eventually achieved after rising out of neediness though already satisfied by just wanting them initially. Natural Citrine is a powerful stone that helps us to realize what needs to be cleaned for our life path and goals to manifest themselves. It stimulates the areas of blockages so we can clear them and clears any energetic blocks from flowing freely through manifestation channels. In addition to this healing power, it also purifies one's will center by helping them perceive situations with proper understanding- either seeing their wrongdoing or empowering others who feel powerless against something they cannot control on their own. Since ancient times, Natural Citrine has been known for giving its wearer courage and fortitude when faced with hard choices that might not please everyone but end up benefiting those around you significantly more than your short-term comfort could provide.


SPIRITUAL Citrine is a stone that facilitates the manifestation of one's desires into reality. It helps overcome difficulties and obstacles while providing clarity, so you can always know your direction when things get tough or confusing.
