Note: Crystals cannot be an alternative for medical attention nor can they be a substitute.
Citrine is a crystal so beneficial and full of positive features and vibrations that every person even slightly interested in minerals and stones should have in their collection. Not only will you be satisfied with its gentle look and tender color, but it will assist you in reaching your goals, and achieving abundance in your life. It is said that citrine brings happiness and optimistic feelings. No need to go into details explaining this --- just take one of these shining crystals and see it for yourself what the impact of its ennobled color is.
Citrine will help you establish a link with the Spiritual spheres of your life. It is a symbol of hope, youth, health, and faithfulness.
The color of this stone is transparent to opaque yellow and golden brown; it is a shining glass-like stone. In its physical characteristics, citrine is nothing more than a variation of rock crystal wherein we find are some iron impurities that are responsible for the unique coloration. There are gem quality citrine crystals, with superior characteristics in terms of transparency and intense perfect color. In such cases, citrine gemstone is practically impossible to distinguish from topaz of the same color, unless one checks the hardness, of course. Earth mined citrines are of very light colored yellow to golden. If the stone possesses a reddish shade, most likely it will be a thermally treated amethyst.
The yellow color of citrine is sometimes connected with the ability to perform logical thinking and intellectual work. Often this mineral is considered to be among the few crystals that need no special cleansing or purification, owing to its inability of accumulating negative energies. Moreover, citrine is thought to be able to transform all the negativities into positive vibrations and environmental irradiation.
The name citrine is believed to originate from the French word for lemon - obviously due to the similarity in their color. The most abundant source of natural citrines is Brazil, but also USA, Madagascar, and Russia have some supplies. Generally, it is a rare stone.
In the metaphysical literature, the meaning and spiritual significance of this crystal is connected to the third, Solar Plexus Chakra. Obviously, this pairing has been done on account of the optical properties, as yellow and golden stones (such as, for instance, amber, yellow (imperial) topaz, yellow calcite, tigers eye, yellow jasper) are attributed to the Manipura chakra. When talking about this energy center, the effect of citrine will be seen in your increased self respect, proper expression of personal powers, and in your ability to attract abundance. These concepts are interlinked. Your improved self-respect will make you capable of using your powers in a reasonable and correct way. On the other hand, your ability to use your powers properly, will bring you to prosperity and abundance, and this not only in the material spheres. Your creativity will rise.
If your third energy center is thrown out of balance, various missuses on the level of the will are possible, such as greed and manipulation. Citrine can help in the balancing of this chakra, as well as in establishing a relation between the seventh and third energy centers, which in turn promotes a feeling of unity with the whole creation. Due to the fact that the golden color is related to the Sun, citrine stones are excellent in this process of harmonization.
If you are a wealthy person, you are in danger of becoming greedy and overly attached to material things. To prevent this, wear citrine in form of citrine jewelry. This stone will help you energize yourself; it will promote heat, comfort and energy. It will help in ordinary things of everyday life. It will open your mind to new thoughts, and increase your self esteem.
If you are not so wealthy, this stone will help you in getting wealth, prosperity and business success. It will teach you how to get rich and it will offer support and wisdom to make the right moves in your career enterprises.
Citrine is thought to balance digestion and some other eating disorders, as well as help with allergies and diabetes. It purifies the spleen, liver, and pancreas. It is believed that along with carnelian it might help with kidney and urinary problems, blood circulation and detoxification. It is a powerful stone for strengthening the immune system and generally the whole metabolism.
On the emotional level, it heals emotional wounds, promotes good will and nice moods. It prevents nightmares and sleep disturbances. On the spiritual level, citrine will teach us that the best way to insure success is to do things for other people as well. The Universe will recognize your responsibility in dealing with financial matters and resources and, naturally, more and more energy in form of money will flow towards you.
In Feng Shui, it is recommended to keep most of the citrine stones in the wealth corner of your house. It is usually the far left corner from the main entrance door of your house. They will make a nice decoration to your home, as they will blend nicely and will be a center of constant soothing energies directed toward the other objects of your interior. Larger crystals always make the best impression, however, the smaller ones also look nice if tastefully displayed.
In conclusion, citrine is a powerful cleansing tool. It carries within the power of the Sun, and as such, it is very creative. It will disperse and ground all negative energies and cleanse all your chakras. It purifies your astral and mental body. If you have problems turning your thoughts into words and emotional expression put on a piece of nice citrine jewelry. This stone will reduce your anger and diminish your fear of responsibility.
Deborah Stein says:
I bought some celestine at Mt. Ida Arkansas. I also did some crystal digging near Hot Springs, Arkansas at te Coleman mines, brought home quite a few milky opaque crystals, two points, some baby clears ones. They recommended I used oxalic acid water to clean them, which I did. I think it may have harmed the celestine though, not sure. The base of it was porous, so think that's why some tiny pieces broke off. If so, anything I can do?
Oxalic acid is usually used to clean hard and durable minerals like quartz, beryl or spinel. Even when used on them, one should be careful when cleansing clusters, twin crystals of intergrown crystals, as they might separate from each other (due to the dissolving of the matrix). The hardness of celestine is very low (3-3.5 on Mohs scale), so I guess oxalic acid and similar strong cleaning liquids should be kept away from this mineral. I really cannot think of an elegant way to repair the damage, though.
Very good and informative information! I am new to all these gemstones and this website has helped me alot. Thank- you!
Thanks for the kind words, and I wish you a lot of pleasant moments exploring the exciting world of crystals and gemstones.
If I carry the citrine in my pocket will it help me to improve my finances? How can I meditate to the citrine that I need help in my finances?
The key is in your increased emotional desire to improve your finances. While meditating with your citrine stone, try visualizing yourself as a financially independent and truly fulfilled and happy person.
Major Pratap Singh says:
I am lucky to have a citrine geode in my home. How to work with it so that I increase my wealth please. Kindly advise.
MAJOR PRATAP SINGH INDIA
Obviously having a citrine at our homes will not be enough if we just passively wait for something to happen. However, the energy of citrine will provide a sort of background support for our daily actions in this direction. According to the art of Feng shui, the citrine stone should be placed in the wealth corner of your home (see the text above).
I want to know that in order to determine the left side of one's house, one has to take the direction while entering the house or otherwise , please make it clear. However, the information for a new gemstone collectors like me is very useful and educating.
Your first guess is correct, you will determine the left side while entering the house. And, welcome to the exciting world of gemstones and crystals!
Should I wear citrine ring in gold or silver? Or wear it aroud necklace?
Hi, how do you know if you have a natural citrine vs one that is heat treated? I heard the ones that are a cognac color are.. I want an all natural citrine so maybe go with the paler yellow colors just to be safe? Thank you!
@Haroon: It depends on your priorities. Otherwise, you could use either metal.
@Selina: Yes, you are right. The deep orange or reddish colors could indicate a heat treated citrine. However, I don't think you can be 100% sure just by taking the citrine's color into account. In any case, the natural citrines should be of less intense yellow color.
The farthest left or far left, which one? The farthest left would be my washroom. The far left would be in the living room just as you open the door to step inside my house. What can I place the crystal in? Also how can I cleanse black tourmaline, and where should I place it, and does it need to be in anything?
Skip the washroom. The living room would be the right choice, just go to the far left corner there. I would display the crystal in the open. In general, crystals need not be covered or be in anything, unless, of course, they belong to the rare few that require special attention.
I bought citrine in a shop for all sorts of gemstones... the next day a bought scratch crosswords from Lotto.. I won 2x small price but I was surprised. The staff in this shop gave a small piece of citrine as a gift.... But I have my own citrine necklace...and Black tourmaline gemstone...
Muhammad Asif Arain says:
Citrine stone pure natural 100% pale yellow, while checking the stone at shop I noticed clouds in citrine as I place the stone on my palms?. Does it need cleansing of negativity? CAN I wear rhodolite garnet with citrine my gemologist says they both are minerals and can be wore together?
You can wear them both. As for the clouds in citrine, almost all natural crystals have various imprerfections, including clouds. So, nothing to worry about them. That is not to say that you shouldn't cleanse your stones and crystals on a regular basis.
Which citrine is more powerful the rough/raw or the shine tumbled one. I have both kind of citrine, my citrine raw is clear.
Whenever I can choose, I always prefer the raw crystals and stones over the tubled ones. Provided, of course, that both are of similar quality.
I bought a citrine crystal. When I got home I put it on my lap, it was in a bag, and forgot it was there. I stood up and it shattered. I found pieces all over my room. I have been fighting with my boyfriend everyday since. Is it irony or did I cause some communication problems between us??
It might have caused an immediate indisposition. However, the event is long gone now and it should have nothing to do with your communication problems. I hope you will resolve any problem that you might still have and find a way for the crystals to work in your favor.
Michael Goh says:
just wondering if you know why citrine changes colour to clear colour after wearing it for two days ? Can I still wear it ? It was golden yellow when I bought it...
The only thing I can think of is its sensitivity to heat. It is known that citrine's color might fade into a lighter nuance if heated. I don't know, however, if the body heat can trigger that. In any case, yes, you can still wear it. If it was turned into a totally transparent crystal, then you would have a clear Rock crystal instead.
I just purchases the citrine stone and bracelet, should I place the beads in my wallet or handbag? I need advice on the best way to use the citrine stone in these two situations. I want to attract more money to myself. First one, I am looking to negotiate a settlement I need to know how best use the stones to get what I want.
Second, I am working on transitioning to a career in insurance and financial services, watch is more sales related. I will be helping people plan for uncertain times, prepare for retirement, college savings, and a lot other areas in financial planning. I want to attract my ideal clients, events, meeting my sales goal every month, and monthly forecast. I want to attract money, good health, success, positive people, things, and events that will allow me to open my own office within 18 to 24 months. Most of all I want to help people learn about their finances to help them prepare for better financial future. I need to finish passing my exams, I have finish two And have three left.
Thanks for your comment. It is best to place your citrine stones in a separate handbag. In order to make the crystals work for you, you should do crystal charging and proper crystal programing. That involves visualization and meditation with your crystals as well as consious projecting of your intended goals into the crystals. More details you can find here, on the sunnyray website. I wish you all the best.
Queen of Vees says:
Wow, this is a wonderful website, I got a lot of good information and questions answered. I am new to the power of stones and is also learning, thanks so much for this site.
Thanks for dropping by, Queen. I whish you a lot of fun in exploring the world of crystals and stones.
Hi, I hv been told that my wealth corner is in my common toilet. Would you advise that I leave a yellow calcite ball in the toilet?
No I wouldn't. You should find the wealth corner of your living room or bedroom and put your citrine ball there.
I was born earth rooster so the fungshui says it's my lucky gemstone. I'm wearing citrine necklace and jade ring. It s not bad to used both of this crystals?
It should be fine, Aya. Thanks for the comment.
Hi, I wear yellow sapphire. I believe it is natural as the jeweller gave me a original certificate. But it has inclusion in it, like white feathers, which denotes it is natural. But on the some site they say that milky yellow sapphire is not good for health. Does they mean milky caused by dirt, or the white feather inside?? Thank you.
It is difficult to say anything without first seeing the stone. I wouldn't worry too much about the inclusions though. All natural stones have inclusions. I know that Vedic astrology insists on having as pure a crystal as one can get, but I believe that it will be beneficial even with its inclusions.
I don't like to wear rings, bracelets etc. Can I just keep the cut and polished citrine in my pocket?? I have always experience some sort of blockage, or my work doesn't go well. Can citrine stone help me with all these problems???
Yes, it may help, but please remember that you, that is, your Divine self, is the real power that can remove your blockages. The stones and crystals are just helpful tools, nothing more. As for wearing jewlery versus lose stones, in fact, the latter are more powerful, as more often than not, they are closer to their original, natural form.
Liena Kido says:
Recently bought tiny citrine crystals and rose quartz which I place separately in a small glass. I place both of them side by side far left once I enter my living room which I place them on the standing lamp shade base (hidden cant be seen by any one) one in my sons room - only citrine and both in my room, both in our dinning room which has a sliding door to exit to the back of the house and both in my study room. All of them were placed as you stand in front of the entrance of the room except for the dinning area, as it connect from the long hallway from the living room (means if you face from the exit sliding door outside it is on the right but from inside the house it is facing far left of the room. Did I place them correct as I really need financial aspect. For my son can he carried it with him in his wallet or school bad (both are small crystals in one ziplock back. As for my husbands wallet and so as mine too. Please advise whether what I did was right. You are so amazing. Thank you.
Thanks for the comment. As far as I can see, you correctly determined the far left corner of your rooms, which is the place for attraction of wealth and prosperity. As for carrying the stones, it is better to have a separate pouch dedicated for stones only, no matter how small they might be. But, that's my personal preference because I don't like them mixed with other stuff in my wallet. God bless!
I was wondering if it's OK to mix crystals? I carry about 5-10 in a pouch at any given time. Thanks.
Yes, in general, it is OK to mix different stones. It is hard to say for sure without more about the stones, though.
I have been wearing citrine bracelet in my right hand for the past few years but I don't see any financial improvement. Can I change it to left hand and can I wear amethyst too since I am Sagittarius lady.
The answer is Yes to both of your questions. With love and light, sunny!
I am financially worried. I have citrine tower, jade ring and necklace jade wu-luo. How could they help my financial problem? Please help me sunny...thanks
I found this website really helpful. I would like to ask, is it OK that I am wearing citrine and black rainbow obsidian ring altogether?
Hi Surya, Sure you can wear them both. I don't see why not.
Can I wear Hessonite and Citrine together. Will it create any harm to me?
Hessonite is a type of Garnet, and yes, you can wear Citrine and Garnet together without any problem.
Hi can I wear cornelian, smoke quartz and citrine together.
Yes, they all are silica based stones and should be Okay together.
Hi, sunny ray,
I was wondering if it is okay to put the stones in several layers of plastic bags to prevent damage? Or will that block their energies from freely flowing and reaching outside the plastic?
Hi Kikia, and thanks for the comment. I would avoid plastic bags, unless I absolutely had to use them. A better alternative would be using bags made out of natural materials like cotton, silk, hemp...
Is it ok if I place my citrine in a red pouch bag? And is it ok if I made a citrine chime for my home?
I don't see why a red pouch bag shouldn't be OK. And, having a citrine chime is a great idea. Thanks for the comment.
Does citrine have to be worn in jewelry or can they be carried around in pocket?
No, you can carry it around in your pocket as a loose stone, preferably in a suitable pouch. It will work just as well, maybe even better than when embedded in jewelry. Thanks for the comment. God bless.
Last time I spoke with you, you answered that it would be preferable to put the stones in bags made of natural material? So, I was curious on whether it would be okay to put them in paper bags, and whether paper bags are considered natural. Also, I have bags made of velvet at home, and I was wondering if these would be better than plastic for the rocks.
Yes, paper bags are considered natural, but I would rather use the velvet bags if I had to choose. Thanks for the question, and God bless.
Hi sunny ray. I love your website and I find it very informative. We just had an 800g citrine and we also have a small one. Do you think the size has different effect? Bigger has more powerful effect?
Thanks for the question. It may very well be that the larger citrine can bring in more energy. However, when properly prepared, the smaller stones can also be quite powerful. So, in general the answer is yes, but one should not discard the smaller stones up front.
Hi Sunnyray. I bought my citrine bracelet 3days ago. I do not know if it is 100% natural citrine. The color is pale yellow. Should i wear it everyday. I'm in a business line and wishing to get my goals. How can meditate with it? Thanks a lot
Please check this page. Thanks.
Abid Asghar says:
My shopkeeper told me that Citrine and Yellow Topaz are the same. Secondly, can I wear yellow topaz and tigers eye together?
Hi Abid Asghar. Thanks for the comment. The shopkeeper is mistaken. There is a huge difference between Citrine and Yellow Topaz, both in terms of price and quality. And, yes, you can combine Topaz and Tiger's eye.
I bought a 3 lemon colour citrine pendant waiting for it to arrive but I carry a citrine stone on my body . Love and light ?????????
I am not getting job even after attending lot of interviews.I ordered citrine stone ring. Will this be helpful.Does anyone have a good feeling after buying the stone?
jessica oneill says:
I just bought a citrine and I was wondering does it need to go off entering the front door and looking into the house? Because if so, it would be my washing room, then there's my kitchen, which both I feel are not suitable.
Hi Jessica, You need not consider the entire house, if that's the case. You can locate the far left corner in each individual room where you want to put your citrine stones.
Can you please tell me where to buy real citrine in a pendant form please.
In your local crystal or mineral store. That way, you will be able to feel the energy of the citrine first hand. Other than that, if you plan to purchase online, Amazon.com is the first place that comes to mind.
Kerry Spurgin says:
have Avery large citrine cave , live in Australia I done a fungshui course , I was told to reverse money area to the right of my living area as we live in the southern hemisphere is this true
Yes. The modern interpretation of Feng shui takes into account the difference between living in the southern versus the northern hemisphere.
consolacion canlas says:
Hi sunnyray, i am wearing tiger's eye mantra engraved bracelet together with an all in one bracelet and a 8eyed dzi with citrine gemstone. Somebody told me that i should not wear tiger's eye bracelet since i am a fire sheep born. Is it true? Thanks.
Hi consolacion canlas
I believe the decisive factor should be how you feel and what's your level of energy while wearing the bracelet, not the actual horoscope sign.
I have just purchased a Golden Calcite, Honey Citrine cluster and a Pyrite crystal to bring wealth, prosperity and business success to our company that we have created around sustainable education and certification. We also want to attract more like minded companies that have the same values and ethics as we do. Recently, we have had a series of companies approach us that do not match us and don't understand what a 'win win' relationship is or just speak a lot of words with no follow through. I was told these crystals would help our business and to keep the Golden Calcite and Pyrite Crystals in the home office and also take the crystals to our meetings/Business events and keep the Honey Citrine Cluster at the front door. Would you agree with this? Kind regards
Yes, I too believe crystals can help in business, especially if programmed the right way way. Thanks for the comment.
Thank you for a wonderful website.
May I ask if a combination of Citrine and Peridot is ideal. Thank you for your help. Annabelle
Citrine and Peridot should be a good combination. Thanks for the kind words.
I am wearing hessonite ring made of silver..
I am not comfortable in wearing ring..
Yes it is very lucky for me
Can I keep it my pocket...
Of course you can. Skin contact is not always needed.
Hi SunnRay, I have recently bought a citrine tumblestone bead online and I've been carrying it in my pocket ever since. Would like to know if that's appropriate if one wants to obtain maximum benefits?
Hi Noah. Thanks for dropping by. Yes, that's about right, but only after you have cleansed, charged and programmed your citrine tumblestone. You can download the first chapter of Olga's crystals encyclopedia for free (the subscribe option below) if you need help in charging and programming of your crystals.
Hi I just bought a citrine pendant and combine it with harndt rose quartz together is it ok.
Yes, it should be Okay.
What is the difference between yellow sapphire and citrine? I bought expensive yellow sapphire from ebay store but jewelers told me that it is just citrine nothing else. I think I am cheated by paying lot more than the price.
You think citrine can give same astrological benefits as compare to yellow sapphire?
Thanks you so much!..
I have to say that in terms of astrological and metaphysical properties there is a huge difference between yellow sapphire and citrine. They are very different crystal types too. If the stone is indeed citrine, I hope you haven't spent too much money for the purchase. Although, some faceted citrines of impeccable, gemstone quality can be rather costly too. Thanks for the comment and God bless.
What can you say about wearing citrine with diamonds in a pendant form, is this a good combination as far as energy prosperity and luck are concern.??
Diamond is my birthstone by the way.
Hi Cres, and yes it is. In my view, this combination has always been great. Hope you will find it beneficial too. Thanks for dropping by, and God bless.
Pranav Mehta says:
Thanks for the details about Citrine in your site. I am convinced of wearing Citrine without asking anybody. As it is clear now that one should wear the stone, crystal according to his problem. Let me know how to cleansed, charge citrine for best results. regards
You can find more details about cleaning and charging of your citrine, and any other stone, in the free chapter of Olga's encyclopedia of crystals that you get when you subscribe to our email list here. Thanks for the comment. Really appreciate it.
Hello there and good day.!!
Hope all well.
I find your site very interesting and informative. I'm wearing citrine (weighing 4.21 carats) with few diamond stones(total diamond wt 0.18 carats), rectangular pendant shape, in a black rhodium detail.
Can yOu please tell me what these gemstones can offer and are these two gemstones (citrine and diamond) work together in terms of improving my life, my energy, my personal growth and energies in terms of good fortune and good luck. Diamond is my birthstone by the way.
Thank yOu and more power.!!
They can work together, and you can certainly program them and project in them your heart's desires for prosperity and good luck. Thank you too for dropping by and best of wishes.
Robbie Campbell says:
Can you tell me how long will it take after one wears citrine of good quality to see any possible positive benefits? And once wear it, will it be good for lifelong or it needs recharge/replacement?
Thanks for your reply in advance!..Love your website....
Thanks for the comment and for the kind words. I would suggest wearing a properly cleansed, charged, and programmed citrine if you want to speed up the metaphysical effects of the stone. As for the duration, it is based on numerous individual parameters. But in the center of the transformation is you, not the stone. The stone is just a conduit of energy. Once programmed, you won't need to recharge or reprogram your citrine, unless you would like to repurpose the stone.
I am interested in learning what stones pair well together!
Is there some rule to follow? What would work best for say Citrine, Amethyst and Rose Quartz?
:) great site!
There are some rules, but the most important one is how you feel with the stones on. Test your combination by monitoring your energy. If you feel great, thet's the right combination for you.
My zodiac sign is cancer, i am facing lot of financial problems. can i wear or keep citrine stone. Thanks Geetha
You can use citrine for that purpose, but you should use it in combination with your positive creative visualization of abundance and prosperity. The process is as if you are programming your citrine for the intended positive outcome.
Dear Sir, I bought a citrine bracelet recently. It is light yellow and looks extremely shiny and clear. Love wearing it. Felt an immediate sense of happiness and joy.
Besides wearing it daily, what else can I do to attract abundance, happiness and wealth into my life?
Besides that, what are stones work well with citrine? I am born in the month of October.
Hi, Sue. You could charge and program your citrine for abundance and happiness. It could make a huge difference.
I have several pieces citrine in the left hand corner of the house I am living in. They are in a glass bowl on the floor. I have had nothing but bad luck with my finances since living here.I have washed and re-charged the citrine when I moved in here. Is the citrine in the right place in the house I'm living in ? I do not have anything in the left corner of the house that I can sit the citrine on. If not what is causing my money problems
Thank you Pam Davis
Thanks for the comment. Well, citrine is just one piece in the puzzle. Stones are auxiliary items to help us focus and support our intentions. But we have to do the heavy work of changing our mindset and eliminating our psychological obstacles on our own. While I cannot comment on the other aspects of your money problems, I can give a suggestion how to use your citrine more efficiently. Namely, you should add programming to the cleansing and charging steps you already use. That way it will work much better. Crystal blessings!
Se Ven Shadows says:
I enjoy your site and clear responses in your blog page, thank you for posting! What is the difference between wearing Citrine in Gold or wearing it in Silver? How do Citrine "benefits change for the user with the change of these metals in particular? Thank you again! Namaste
In short, the metaphysical properties of Gold and Silver come into play. Gold is the metal of the Sun - therefore it has a more active energy. Silver is connected with the Moon - thus, more passive energy. Of course, there are finer details, but that's the basics. Thanks for the comment, and many crystal blessings.
hi, just want to know can i wear peridot bracelet and jade bracelet on the same arm and does it matter which one left or right i wear it
Yes you can. As for the left hand/right hand difference check out this page.
Hi I have a citrine bracelet,whenever I wear it I can feel its power. It is ok if I take it out at night and can I wear citrine as a ring ,if so how big in terms of karat and which finger? will it have the same effect as the bracelet.
Yes it is Okay. The effect is in the stone, not so much in the jewelry. As for the finger, maybe this post can help you decide. Greetings.
After feeling strongly drawn to citrine I purchased a beautiful necklace and put it on yesterday. Within a short time of putting the stone around my neck, I began to get a headache, feel aches and pains in my neck and spine and feeling like I have a cold. Is this a negative side effect or a physical clearing (I am a very sensitive soul with a high vibration) or could this be something else?
Hi Suzi. Not easy to tell — it could be either. Also, if you are extremely sensitive, it could be that you are sensing some previously accumulated vibration in the necklace from other people and/or environments. A question. Have you cleansed and charged your citrine necklace after the purchase?
Yoong Tee Chai says:
Recently bought a citrine slab size of 100 X 150mm. and also a clear quartz cluster the same size from gem store. They are still wrapped with plastic bubble wrap at home. Intend to display them before this Chinese New Year (first week of Febuary 2016.
When open them and before displaying, how do is cleanse them?
Was advised by gem store staff to place them together at the right side of my main entrance door which is my tv area on the tv cabinet according to feng shui.
How often do I need to cleanse them? Intended to use cleansing way either by putting them over brown rice and dispose the rice after cleansing or put them under running tap water then place them in gargen on grass for 24 hours under sunlight and also moonlight. Kindly advice. Thanks.
Hi Yoong Tee Chai
There is nothing incorrect with your intended way of keeping, cleansing, and charging your slab and cluster. Thanks for the comment. With Love and Light, sunnyray.
Is it okay to drink hot water with citrine crystal in it?
Not sure exactly what you mean. If you think about charging water with your citrine, check this post. Other than that, could you elaborate why you would want to use hot water?
Hi I recently bought a citrine bracelet and I'm wondering how to program the bracelet so that I can feel its powers and hopefully bring prosperity and wealth to me? Thanks.
Just project into it your perfect and clear mental images of prosperity and wealth, accompanied with your best emotions that reflect your accomplishment.
Hi is it ok to break a piece of the citrine off to share.
I guess, there is nothing wrong with that. However, I personally wouldn't do that. Any special reason why you would want to do that?
Hey ,I want to know is citrine suitable for me . Please I wanna help in this matter
I want to use citrine and amethyst in my office. It is a home office and I face my back to french doors, but have a mirror in place to look at, for fung shui reasons. I want to know if it is acceptable to place these crystals on my desk. Do I use the far left corner as I would in a room, or is there another placement that might be better.
No, the placement is perfect. Thanks for taking the time to leave your comment.
I cleansed my Citrine stone And today today I just finished programming it. Its 5:33am here and waiting for the sun to appear so I can wear it for prosperity and abundance in my life.
So my question is does it require cleansing?
If you want to program any stone, usually the first step is cleansing to erase any previous patterns the stone might have. The second step usually is charging, to bring in the type of energy you would like it to have. The last step should actually be the programming itself, which means imprinting your (hopefully noble and selfless) intentions into it.
I am about to buy a bracelet and thinking of combining citrine and aquamarine. Is that a good idea or better off just using citrine ? My goal is to prosper in my business and for financial abundance. I am a scorpion November 14th birth date. Do let me know your thoughts.
Citrin and aquamarine is a great combination for you. Thanks for the comment and take care.
Tawt Strat says:
I'm quite new to this but I'm a scorpio born in November and citrine and topaz are both supposedly my birth stones. My question is, can I wear them together? I read on another site that topaz dispels all enchantments.
Yes, you can wear them together.

Thanks. I'm currently wearing a "yellow topaz bead charm on a silver choker chain anyway and was thinking about adding another identical bead to it and perhaps putting a citrine amulet inbetween them. That seems preferable to me to wearing a dangling pendant but the latter would be closer to my heart centre I suppose. I do suffer from anxiety though and have a fear of choking that can be quite distressing and would be interested in any thoughts that you might have about this.
Some years ago a crystal healer tried to tell me that I might have been hanged in a past life and she also claimed that I had died in a tank in the first world war. I am sceptical about anything like that but did feel what you might call a kundalini energy rush at one point when she was working with me and am quite sensitive like that.
It doesn't really matter what had happened in the past. We all carry with us different scars and hurts from the past. What matters is what's happening now. It really does, because we can only truly live in the present, and we can only make contact with our spiritual side in the present moment. As for your charm, I don't see why you shouldn't add another citrine bead. Thanks for the comment and many blessings.

Well, I have purchased a few small silver charms that I'll need a jewler to fix to a chain for me. I am planning to add a bright opal that I've ordered as well, so the necklace will be supposed to symbolise scorpio and the topaz stones are made here in Scotland and could well be native Scottish opal. I read something about certain stones being used in celtic witchcraft but they seem to have used amethyst and not citrine.
Tawt Strat says:
But I am trying to get a feel for the stones anyway and I bought a citrine teardrop pendant that broke, so that the gem came out of the setting. I could try to get my money back but I am currently carrying it in a pouch as a sort of amulet. Citrine is said to be used in healing family problems and I have fallen out with my family and it has been quite upsetting but also a necessary change that had to happen in my life that I am trying to move forward positively from.
Should you wear citrine a certain way? Like should the white end be at the top and the orange area be towards the bottom or vice versa?
Muhammad Umer Rashid says:
Hi Sunny, I need to ask that which hand and which finger we should wear citrine ring? Thanks so much.
Jupiter is the planet of Citrine, so the index finger. Please check out this post for more on the link between planets, fingers, and crystals.
I have amazonite, sodalite, diaptase and tiger eyes. Where can I place the stones in my bed room?
Hello, I have found a piece of citrine in a pocket of one of my handbags. I have never seen this crusty before and I certainly have never purchased one. It's like it has mysteriously appeared out of thin air. Do you think it means anything? It's so spooky! X
It definitely means something. It could mean any number of things though. The first that comes to my mind is that maybe your body had some kind of deficit for the energy of this stone. In such situation, when really needed, stones sort of find their way to us on their own.
My husband gave me a citrine which was arranged in a Star Of David form.... Citrine are round like marble but displayed in a round shape "yellow calcite,( I think) with a drawn Star Of David, it's put has the round citrine on it.
How do I use it and what's the significance of Star of David. Thank you & God Gless.
Thanks for the comment and for the interesting question. The Star of David is a powerful metaphysical symbol. There are a lot of ideas about what it might signify exactly. For example, one of the possible meaning is connected to the absolute rule of God in the Universe, represented by the six directions: south, north, west, east, up, and down. The other meaning is related to the two triangles - one pointed up toward the Divine, and the other down toward the material existence. Now, you have all that combined with Citrine, which is the stone of the Solar plexus area. Together they make a powerful and strong tool for personal and spiritual development.

Hi your articles are very informative. I just wanted one information from you I am wearing tigers eye can I wear citrine along with it. Which are the crystals and stones do not agree with each other. Thanks
Yes you can. They are compatible, as most of the crystals and stones are. Thanks for reading and many crystal blessings.
I want to buy citrine crystal ball, but my fear is that I may not buy natural stone because I can't differentiate these stones between fake and original.
Your fear is justified indeed. Artificially produced Citrine (that is, from Amethyst) is very difficult to discriminate from its Natural cousin. The best shot you would have is to purchase your crystal ball from someone you trust, but then again, they could be fooled too. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
pranay barman says:
I wear tiger eye of few months its did not working, why
What do you mean by "working"? It is us who should do the working, the stones are just auxiliary tools that help us manifest our intentions more easily.
I was reading the concerns and comments. I realized couple of them said about programming the crystal. What does that mean.
Thanks for taking the time to read the comments. Here is a more detailed explanation about crystal programming. All the best and take care.
I've just purchased a citrine cathedral and would like to know more about placement in the home. I know it should be placed in the far left corner when entering the home, however, does it literally have to be in the corner or can it be in the vicinity of the far left corner a few feet away?
If placed in the literal corner of the room it would be obstructed and directly above the heat source in the room. Please advise. Thanks!
Yes, it can be in the vicinity. These rules are not written in stone. You can modify them to a certain extent.
Hi I just got my citrine stone today I just wanted to know how long it takes to work.
Carla Garrathy says:
I bought citrine and have placed it In the far left corner of my living room as per your instructions. The problem I have is there is nothing to put the crystal on so I have put it on the floor.. no one can see it and it's quite darn in that corner. Is this OK? I am looking to attract financial stability.
I have also charged it by living it in the window in sunlight and moonlight.. is this correct?
Your help is much appreciated
Hi Carla. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Yes, that's basically correct. Please note though, that the stone is there only to help you keep the perfect image of financial stability in your mind. So, in the end, the result is up to you.
Just to say I purchased a citrine tumble stone. I had no idea it had to be cleansed. But it has brought me loads of luck. I now sleep fine at night I feel happier,it's helped me with finish creative work, which I was stuck with before. Plus in one week I am ????50 better off.I don't want to change my tumble stone for a rough cut one, or cleanse it because it has been very lucky for me.what is yourushing advise?
Hi Shella. No need to change or cleanse it if it works for you. Thanks for the comment and have fun.
This post cleared a lot of doubts I had regarding citrine. I recently bought a citrine pendant in 14k gold. I have heard that citrine greatly benefits solar plexus chakra and for that the pendant should be worn a maximum of 3-4 inches above the navel. But I have also read that these gemstones are most beneficial when light passes through them onto our skin. So, I was wondering if you had a recommendation for the best chain length for maximum benefits to the solar plexus chakra?
I have nothing to add to what you have said. As close to the navel area as possible. Thanks for the comment and many blessings.
I bought a Citrine crystal for my husband to place it at his work station in office. Just a day ltr, it chipped off itself.
Would the crystal still be usable or needs to be cleansed again? As he have cleansed his crystal prior to placing in office.
Yes, that would be a good idea. Or even purchasing another brand new citrine.
Hello and thank you for the helpful information! My mother gave me a citrine sphere, with a stand. I've been carrying it with me, as I love how it feels when I hold and roll it in my hand. Initially I was keeping it on my desk at work but I would like to know if there is a proper way to use a citrine sphere other than just placing it in the wealth corner of my home. Thank you again!
Hi Rory. That's pretty much how you should use it. Of course, whenever you feel the need to feel its energy, you should do that. Thanks for the comment and take care.
I just bought a citrine of 800gms (not yet paid). My far left corner from the main entrance is my bedroom. Is it ok to put it there?
Thank you for your answer.
Venkaatesh Iyer says:
Hi I bought a 7.5075 Carats citrine oval stone. can I make a ring and put it in my finger and this is a very soft stone and very slippery feel like some plastic type is this stone like this in general.
Yes, a jeweler can make a ring of it easily. As for how it feels, it shouldn't feel like pastic, it should feel exactly like rock crystal or amethyst.
Pia Deb says:
I am a sheep and as per different website predicting on chinese zodiac 2017, I need to wear obsidian black beads and citrine round beads bracelet. Can I wear these 2 bracelets on my left wrist together? will it help me to develop my career and improve my wealth or wearing them together may harm me ? Your answer is very important to me. Thank you.
I haven't tried this particular combination, but I don't think it would harm you if you wear them together.
Renuka singh says:

Hi I just bought a citrine bracelet cause I'm a Scorpio what hand am I supposed to wear it on cause I write with my right hand ???
Sunnyray congratulations you have a fascinating site.
On my 28th marriage anniversary my husband drove 2 hours to purchase me a citrine ring with sapphires and diamonds that I had seen and could not stop thinking about. Is this a good combination of stone's Withe citrine??
Thanks, Anty and thanks for the comment. Citrine with sapphires and diamonds,... wow, that's a great combination. Enjoy!
I'm wearing bracelet with citrine in a right hand, amethyst earring with silver and rose quarts pendant. It's OK combination with white gold necklace, thanks!
I am wearing blue sapphire, natural zircon and Emerald currently, can i wear Citrine along with that?, if yes on what hand?... Is it ok to wear tiger's eye along with that?. my financial condition is not good..
We have a south facing front door to our home, but only use the side east facing door as our entrance. Which entrance should I use to place the citrine in the far left corner? One would be in a foyer, the other in the kitchen. Thank you for your assistance!
I would choose the door you are actually using, as it will be the one through which chi energy is entering your home on a daily basis, provided that the other door, which is your main entrance, is not being used very often.
Hi,Regarding citrine I have one question....
Should it should be put on the far left corner of the entrance.
Is it when we stand inside or outside of the entrance....
Pls am very confused.thanks
When you stand in front of the entrance looking at your home before you enter inside. Hope this helps.
i bought a citrine, malachite, rose quartz n aquamarine bracelets in individual piece.
can i wear citrine & malachite on left hand to attract wealth n success in career n rose quartz n aquamarine on right hand for reducing stress n improve relationships? does malachite helps to improve communication? im in sales n marketing line
Sure you can. As for communication skills, they should be stones of the fifth chakra, so you should be looking for blue colored stones, like e.g., sodalite or lapis. Thanks.

Hi sunny I'm extremely worried I'm gemini born 18/06/76 I bought white gold Citrine ring and yellow gold tigers eye I didn't cleanz or charge I'm wearing citrine on index finger right hand and tigers eye on right hand ring finger is it appropriate Gud or bad please let me know about charging cleansing cause ive taken both off cause ever since I born and wore tigers eye I've only had nothing but bad luck wat can be the prob Wat do I need to do.on my pinkie I'm wearing a black stone which I was told it's onyx wid white cubic stones.Please advise me.
If you feel like some of the stones you wear are bringing you bad luck, then simply take them off, cleanse them, and wait some time before putting them on again. Nothing is written in stone. Every one of us is unique. What's good for one person, doesn't mean it will be beneficial for another. Experiment and try to find the best stone for you in the current period of your life.
I accidentally dropped my citrine tower the bottom part were seen to be chipped off.
Would this affect its effectiveness? Do i need to do anything such as bring it to a shop to reinstate its shape?
Looking forward to your advice soonest. Thanks.
This is a frequent dilemma. Some people think that if the crystal is chipped, this could affect its effectiveness. We believe that the difference in power is very small, if not negligible.
i bought few crystals bracelets recently. amazonite,lapis lazuli,citrine,malachite,rose quartz n aquamarine. the lady told me to wear amazonite,lapis lazuli,citrine n malachite on left hand for success,wealth and better communication as needed in my sales career. N wear rose quartz & aquamarine on my right hand for reducing stress n calming. is these combination correct?
Nice combinations to begin with, although everything is personal, and you should adjust them given the feedback you get from the stones.
Chelaine Soo says:
can i combine crystal bracelets of amazonite, citrine, rose quartz and malachite on left hand for success, wealth, improving relationships and emotional healing...and right hand to wear aquamarine + lapiz lazuli bracelet for calming + reducing stress/prevent migraines? Is this a good combination? Pls advise.
A great website! My husband bought me a citrine gold ring to help unblock my solar plexus chakra. I've been wearing it on my right hand 3rd finger. Recently I've been having pain in my hand and up my arm similar to a typing strain. I stopped wearing the ring and the pain has disappeared. Do you think the citrine is too powerful for me?
Hi can citrine and tiger eyes be mixed together for financial purpose....thanks
Yes they can.
Hi can I wear a mix of citrine and tiger beads bracelet on both the hands.. I'm a leo born on 1st August. Kindly advice.
Do you have a particular reason that makes you think you can't?
Hi sunny...can you tell something about citrine with phantom(only one in the point ,with chlorite and 3D)?I have a point and I'd like to know about it,because it is a strange Crystal, with also a black inclusion in the bottom with some needles.tourmaline or rutile?for me is strange cause I've never heard of citrine&tourmaline togheter..and rutile I know it is gold in color..can you tell me something about this phantom citrine (tourmalinated?) point? I love it , because the color range is dark in the bottom,pale light Yellow in the middle and a Little puff of white(chlorite)in the head..from black to white ,passing over the lime Yellow...wonderful!but the phantom I'm still understanding...and that's why I've asked you...thanks for Your lovable site...and thanks to exist
Thanks for the comment and nice words. We know so little about the individual crystals to be able to tell something about phantoms, which are like an union of 2 or more crystals with very particular properties. Personally I've never had a case like you describe. Try to feel the phantom's energy and use your intuition to discover the special range of energy it gives off.
