Citrine vs Citrine
There is a lot of debate over this stone of happiness, there are two kinds of citrine but both are citrine! One is naturally heated by the Earth's core and the other is heat treated amethyst. Heat treated and natural citrine have the same chemical composition of Si02 and maintain the same healing properties. The natural citrine color can look like a soft lemon quartz or a pale yellow quartz almost like a clear quartz making it hard to distinguish. Heat treated citrine comes in many shades from a deep golden color to a burnt umber. Heat treated citrine is most commonly sold and typically the type of citrine you see.
Heat treated or natural, citrine is one of the only stones that does not hold negative energy. It dissipates and transmutes negative vibrations from yourself and other crystals never needing cleansing and makes a wonderful stone to add to any collection or pouch. Citrine provides comfort and optimism coupled with emotional balance making it an excellent stone for clearing the aura and aligning the auric body. Also acts similarly to the cutting edge of a sword, penetrating problems and expediting solutions.
Citrine will always brighten your disposition emitting happiness and helps one to laugh without restraint. It activates, opens and energizes the sacral and solar plexus chakras promoting personal power, creativity and decisiveness. Citrine has a hardness of 7 on the Moh's scale and vibrates to the number 6.
Heat treated or natural citrine is the same and an all around wonderful stone!
