Citrine is a member of the quartz crystal family, and is quite a powerful piece of earth. Much of the Citrine on the market today is an imposter, a heat treated Amethyst disguised as Citrine. Natural Citrine is actually light tan to yellow color, is not bright yellow or orange. See below for some images of real versus fake.
What has happened is the seller has taken an Amethyst piece, heated it up, and changed it’s coloring, but its bones and shape are still an Amethyst.
It was important for us to bring in the natural version of Citrine because it is such an important component for prosperity. Heat-treated Amethyst ‘Citrine’ can sometimes gain the energy of a Citrine, but it can be unpredictable. Sending you a faux Citrine would mean that I could actually be sending you the crystal energy of an Amethyst, which seems to defeat the purpose right? This is also why our citrine tumbles and pieces may be more expensive that other people, because naturally occuring Citrine is far more rare than Amethyst. But you need that correct energy people!
What to do with your Citrine?
A nice Citrine point or piece is great to keep on your desk and within your sightlines of where you do the most work, within two feet of you is best. Let it remind you of its magical properties on the regular. It is also great to keep Citrine on your person with malas or necklaces, whatever you prefer, especially when you are on the move for a business meeting or presentation. Or you can keep it in the prosperity corner of your home or office, which would be the back left corner of your space (from looking toward your house or office from outside).
When you first receive a Citrine, be sure to cleanse its energy with either sage, palo santo, the moon, sound bath, or selenite. You want to be sure it has your intentions put into it. While holding your citrine, think about your intentions and the goals you have, and what you want to manifest with it. Write down your affirmation, and while holding in in your dominant hand, repeat your affirmation and intention until you feel the crystal has take the message. Place it on your desk, near a vision board (with your written affirmation if you’d like), you can even take a bath with it to ward off negativity, or place on your body to give a boost of energy.
