CITRINE, otherwise known as yellow quartz, is named after the French word 'citron' meaning yellow. Its colour varies from pale yellow to golden brown. In ancient times citrine was thought to protect against evil thoughts.
Citrine is unusual in that it never needs to be cleansed. I would describe citrine as the 'feel good' crystal as it brings with it joy, wonder, delight, enthusiasm, hope and self-confidence.
Citrine banishes negativity and is an excellent antidepressant.
It is recommended for clearing the aura and filling any dark areas with happiness and light. The solar plexus chakra can be cleansed and balanced with regular use of this crystal so it is good for those who are fearful and insecure.
Citrine is excellent for anyone who is drained and tired - whether they suffer from M. E. or are just in need of an energy boost.
Citrine can also stimulate the brain, helping to solve problems more clearly and explore all avenues.
It promotes new ideas and creativity and brings abundance and prosperity.
If you have cash flow problems then wear or carry a small piece of citrine in your pocket!
