Classically, should you stumble upon it during a walk on the beach (especially if the beach you find yourself on is in Wales, you’re more than likely to do so), the piece you find will be mostly white and cloudy with an orange end. Should you find it in the shop, polished or not, you will find it to be mostly white, with orange on the end. This is the classic characteristic of citrine, the mostly white with some orange combo. Because of this, it’s quite easy to pick out and not get confused between it and another crystal such as amber (most of the time).

This crystal is a regeneratore. Having it near you will restore your energy and optimism. It will also do the same for any other crystals or metaphysical tools you might have. It is a wonderful piece to have on your alter specifically for that reason. It cleanses beautifully, and doesn’t need cleansing in return. It is a constant source of energy direct from the sun and earth and ready for any task. “It absorbs, transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy and is therefore extremely protective for the environment,” says TheCrystal Bible. It is no wonder it is so abundant in places like Russia, France, Britain and the U.S. (as well as other places) – perhaps it has been what has kept us from fully destroying ourselves.

This stone is so proficient as a cleanser that it will even alert the wearer of any low energy, over extension of energy, negative energy or draining of energy before it is too late, so that the wearer can take appropriate action. Because of this, it is excellent for protection.

A tried and true action to be taken with citrine is to put some in the wealth corner of your house (or your bedroom if you have shared space). In Feng Shui, the wealth corner is the back left corner of the house from your front door (or of your bedroom from your bedroom door, again if you’re sharing space). I personally have kept this as practice for at least 8 years and have never had overwhelming money problems (a couple of tight moments, but it always came through in the end). This is a stone of abundance, which allows one to manifest and attract wealth on all levels when needed, as well as success and over-all good things.

Citrineaids in the betterment of the self on psychological levels as well as emotional levels. It helps raise self esteem and confidence, and will negate self destructive tendencies, as well as aid in motivation, creativity and helps with communication of ideas, thoughts and feelings. For those who are quite sensitive (like myself), it will help with the thicker skin, helping one to cope with or be able to take criticisms and/or harsh realities/truths. This stone-of-the-sun will help clear out the darkness and uplift one from the depths of depression, stabilize fears and phobias, and can help in calming anger and replacing it with reason and understanding.
