Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. Everything about this stone emanates positivity and joy. Even its name, which is derived from the French word for lemon, carries a sense of sun and joy attached to it. Found naturally in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and USA, this gemstone has been an ornamental gem for civilizations as early as 300 B.C., and a favorite with jewelry makers since the ancient Greeks and Romans. Even in first century A.D., citrine was being fashioned into cabochon rings and used in intaglio work. Later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria would become fascinated by the beauty of the stone, and as a result it would be used by Scottish men in kilt pins, shoulder broaches, and to adorn their swords and the handles of their daggers. The stone’s popularity resurged again during the Art Deco era, as early Hollywood stars boasted citrine jewelry like elaborate brooches, grand necklaces and other pieces where large faceted citrine was the center piece.
Citrine is associated with the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. By connecting with the sacral chakra, the citrine healing properties are most effective in stimulating an increase in sexual and creative fertility. The conception of both ideas and life can be plentiful under citrine’s power to motivate. It also links to the root chakra to bring the physical energy up to the emotional, and raise all energy to a higher plane. As this chakra is an area where people often suffer energy blocks, citrine can be crucial to clear that block. The solar plexus is the central energy distributer, so citrine’s connection to this chakra will elevate energy levels and general circulation.
