Citrine is a silicon dioxide mineral, a member of the Quartz group with a hardness of 7. Its crystal system is trigonal and its yellow pigmentation is derived from iron. It varies in shade from very pale yellow to a deep amber, nearly orange, with some specimens exhibiting brownish tinges. The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. Citrine was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C. and was worked into cabochon ring stones and intaglios in Greece and Rome through the first and second centuries A.D. Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst. In general, the deeper amber and orangish shades are heat treated. Natural Citrines are mostly a pale yellow color. Deposits of natural Citrine have been found in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and the USA.
ROBERT SIMMONS Citrine opens the inner doors to increased clarity of thought, enhanced creativity and magnified powers of will and manifestation. It is one of the premier stones for the second chakra and is capable of awakening the powers of creative imagination in even the most unconscious individuals!
Imagination, as Einstein said, is more important than knowledge. Knowledge refers to facts, conditions or principles already known and is thus rooted in the past. Through knowledge alone there can be repetition only, no creativity. The creative powers of human beings. and all beings, are rooted in imagination. Before someone could create the laser beam, the sonnet or the souffle, it had to be imagined. Imagination is the means by which one turns toward the time stream from the future, opening the self beyond what has been, into the realm of what can be. Citrine, in both natural and heated forms, stimulates imagination through three portals-the second, third and sixth chakras. The vibratory resonance of Citrine activates and harmonizes these three energy centers, all of which are necessary to the process of creative imagination.
Citrine activates the thinking process and enhances mental clarity, as well as the visionary function through which inner images appear. After all, imagination is in essence the process of image-making. Until one has the image, one cannot build the invention. Through the second chakra, Citrine stimulates the creative function, the wellspring from which new potentials are born. Through the third chakra, the solar plexus, Citrine generates the human dynamo of personal will. It is said that great accomplishments are one percent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration. The energy that sustains one through the grunt work of manifesting one's creative ideas is that of the will. Without this third component ideas can fizzle out before they come to fruition. Citrine strengthens the third chakra, and through that, one can more readily dig down and find the persistence to make it happen."
Citrine works synergistically with many stones, and one can choose combinations based on where one feels the need to add (or multiply) additional energy. Heliodor, Golden Labradorite and Imperial Topaz add power to third chakra, seat of the personal will. For additional emphasis on the creative function, Zincite, Orange Calcite and Carnelian are excellent choices. For enhancing the visionary function, Phenacite, Azeztulite and Natrolite are ideal allies. To bring in more spiritual energies from the higher realms, Amethyst, Petalite. Danburite, Clear Apophyllite, Scolecite and/or Herderite can be of great assistance.
