Origin of the name :

The etymology of the name quartz comes from the name "quaterz" meaning "bad ore" or the German term "gewärz" meaning "germ" and "growth". Rose quartz is regularly called: conite, azeztulite, dragonite, lodolite, konolite or azeztulite. Our Citrine is sourced primarily from Africa, Uruguay, Sri Lanka, Australia, Madagascar, the United States, India, Spain and Brazil, but can come from many other countries around the world.

Legends and popular beliefs:

Known since 500 BC, citrine stone has been popular since ancient Greece. At that time, citrine was considered a good luck charm, used for protection from the evil eye and wild animals. The Roman Empire used it to make engraved stones with reliefs, but also citrine pendants and cabochons. The best known citrine stone deposits to date are in the Antananarivo province of Madagascar. A number of related deposits exist in Germany, Brazil, Spain, Austria, the United States and the Czech Republic. Beware also of the stones that are circulating on the market today. Citrine is rare and expensive. That's why there are many FAKE stones or imitations. The most common fake citrine is amethyst heated to over 500°C, which once heated will turn from purple to whitish yellow.

This stone is for you if :

Cleansing and recharging: 

Not all stones can be cleansed in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others water or the moon, etc.. It is therefore important to respect the needs of each stone.

For an effective purification of citrine, we advise you to purify it as soon as you receive it. Indeed, even if we purify all the stones ourselves, they have been handled by other people before you. It is thus important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you.

  • Water, sun, rock crystal, flower of life, fumigation


Purification : 

In regards to purifying citrine, we recommend you purify it by placing it under spring or river water for a few seconds while delivering an intention. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give it the following intention: "help me find joy and happiness". The purer the water, the more effective the purification. Be sure to dry your jewel well to avoid damaging it. White sage and Palo Santo are also good ways to purify rose quartz and rid it of bad energy. Light your sacred herb and then you can pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle but effective technique can also be used to recharge your stones.

Important : Never drink, store or use water that has been used to purify your stones. Also, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver...) cannot be in contact with water for too long.


Recharging your citrine is possible on a crystal quartz cluster or amethyst geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least one day. The 2nd possible method to recharge a rose quartz stone is with sacred geometry. We advise you to use the high vibratory rates of flower of life, scallops ... The 3rd method is also the most effective to recharge your citrine is exposure to sunlight. Indeed, citrine is a solar stone and will receive many beneficial effects to deeply recharge your stones. We therefore recommend that you place your citrine on the edge of a window or directly outside for a few hours to recharge it. You can also place your stone in a glass of pure water in the sunlight. This method is not recommended for jewelry containing metals.

Frequency of recharging : 

After a certain time, your stone will have transmitted all its energy and will need an effective recharging. We invite you to purify and recharge it regularly. If you use it daily or during an intense period (such as exams), we recommend that you purify it once a week to cleanse it of negative energies and recharge it twice a week to bring positive energies to it. If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a month and recharge it 2 to 3 times a month. 

Advice :  

Expose it regularly to sunlight to recharge it so that it sends you its good energies daily.
