Many many years ago I was at an outside vendor farmers market. There was a guy there selling crystals. At that time of my life, I loved crystals but know absolutely nothing about them. I was just starting to learn. They were just pretty and I was drawn to them.

In the middle of his display was a really pretty yellow stone. I remember it was a rather gloomy day outside, maybe even a bit too cool for me. Ben and I were spending the week in our motorhome having a little “chill out” time. I may have been a little depressed.

So I bought this pretty yellow polished stone the guy called a “citrine”. It the bottom crystal in the photo.

Since it was such a gloomy day and because I was a little on the depressed side I decided to try my hand at “Charging and programming” this stone, something I had never done before. So I did. I programmed it to be my “sunshine” stone, to always bring warmth and happiness into my life whenever I needed it.

This stone stayed with me for years, usually in a pocket, sometimes in a little leather bag.

Then one day it was gone.

Since my initial purchase, I had done a bit more reading on crystals and healing and knew that when a stone disappears it is because someone else needed it more. That did not make me particularly happy because I needed it and I missed it. I turned my house upside down, I checked cracks and crevices in the motorhome. I searched all my pockets in all my clothing.

The crystal was gone.

Years later as I was packing all my things to move from California to Oklahoma that crystal showed back up. I found it laying on my bed. It had come home because it knew I needed it once more.

Citrine is still my most favorite stone of all times.

Citrine wire wrapped NecklaceJust recently my Brother in law came across a Citrine point pendant, poorly wrapped in copper that was going to be thrown away. He grabbed it for me, knowing I would know what to do with it and love it. I removed the old wrapping and re-wrapped it in silver. Lately, I have been drawn to wear it.

So a little about Citrine…

  • Citrine is yellow in color making it perfect to work with the Solar Plexus Chakra, which is the chakra of your personal power and energy.
  • It is a stone of imagination and creativity. It carries the energy of good luck.
  • Citrine harnesses the warmth and power of the sun.
  • Natural Citrine is self-cleansing, Natural Citrine is rare and quite expensive so the pieces you pick up for a dollar or two are probably not natural citrine but heat treated Amethyst.  There is nothing wrong with these pieces, they are wonderful. I read in one scientific article that sometimes Amethyst changes to Citrine naturally, I guess if it is hot enough!
  • Citrine is also called the “merchants stone” and is often placed within a cash bag or cash register for abundance. It attracts success. In the top photo, the citrine cluster is one I leave in my gallery/store. I also keep a small point in my cash bag.
  • Citrine is a great stone to have around during family arguments because it repels and clears negative energy and helps bring about peaceful, loving resolution.
