Everything We Know About Citrine Healing Crystals

For those who use crystals and stones in their healing or spiritual practices, it's essential to understand the benefits and properties of each stone and crystal in their arsenal. Some are said to bring prosperity, while others help to alleviate headaches or emotional distress. 

Citrine is sold in two forms on the market: natural citrine, which is smokey orange/brown or grayish, and heat-enhanced citrine, which is orange, gold, and light yellow in color, and therefore fits its name well (via Healing Crystals). It is a variety of quartz, which is generally known to be among the most powerful varieties of crystals and stones (via Charms of Light).

Citrine is associated with the sacral, solar plexus, and crown chakras, and is often used in healing practices associated with those chakras. It is also associated with the zodiac signs of Aries and Leo, which are sun signs, and Gemini, and Libra, which are air signs. It is further associated with the planet Jupiter and the birth month of November. 

How to use and care for your citrine crystals

Citrine is said to be powered by the Sun, and as such, it is used to warm, cleanse and energize (via Healing Crystals). Just like a beautiful sunny day, it is said to heighten optimism, joy, and creativity in the user. It is also excellent at trasmuting negative energies and protecting both people and environments like a person's home. 

With regard to healing, citrine is said to be particularly beneficial for clearing issues of the spine and of the digestive system or organs of elimination. Further, because the sun and energies related to it are, in essence, pure energy, citrine is also used to treat chronic fatigue and depression, uplifting the spirit and energizing the body. 

Citrine, because of its sun-like energy, does not need to be cleansed or recharged as often as some other crystals and stones, but it is important that you cleanse it if you use it often, and between uses if you use it for different people.
