Chakra :  2nd Sacral Chakra, 3rd Solar Plexus Chakra


Origin of the name :

The name citrine comes from the Latin citrus which means lemon, in reference to its pretty yellow color.

This quartz has a slightly yellow color thanks to the iron oxide present in its crystals.

Our Citrine comes mainly from Africa, Uruguay, Sri Lanka, Australia, Madagascar, USA, India, Spain and Brazil, but can come from several other countries around the world.


Legends and popular beliefs:

Known since 500 BC, citrine stone has always been popular since ancient Greece. 

At that time, citrine was considered a lucky charm, used to protect against the evil eye and wild animals. 

The Roman Empire used it to make engraved stones with reliefs, but also citrine pendants and cabochons.


The most well-known citrine stone deposits to date are located in the province of Antananarivo in Madagascar. A good number of related deposits exist in the countries of Germany, Brazil, Spain, Austria, USA and Czechia. 


Be careful too because you have to be wary of the stones that are currently circulating on the market. Citrine is rare and expensive. This is why there are many FAKE stones or imitations. The most common false citrine is amethyst heated to more than 500°C, which once heated will change from purple to whitish yellow.

This stone is for you if:

This stone is not for you if:

It is a stone that can be for everyone. 


Purification and recharging: 

Not all stones can be cleaned in the same way. Some do not like the sun, others the 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 manipulated by other people before you. It is therefore important to purify them so that they deliver all their virtues to you. 

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


Purification : 

Regarding the purification of citrine, we recommend that you purify it by placing it under spring or river water for a few seconds while delivering an intention to it. We recommend that you take inspiration from its virtues. For example, you could give him the following intention: "help me find joy and happiness". The purer the water, the more effective the purification will be. Be sure to dry your jewelry well so as not to damage it.

White sage and Palo Santo are also good ways to purify Pink Quartz and rid it of bad energies. Light your sacred grass then you can then pass it under this smoke with strong purifying powers. This gentle, yet 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. In addition, jewelry made of a material other than stones (wire, stainless steel, gold, silver, etc.) cannot be in contact with water for too long.


Recharging your citrine is possible on a cluster of crystalline quartz or an amethyst geode. For this method, leave your stone/jewel in your geode for at least a day.

The 2nd possible method to recharge a Pink 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 for recharging your citrine is exposure to sunlight. 

Indeed, citrine is a sun stone and will receive many very 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 in order to recharge it.

You can also place your stone in a glass of pure water placed in the rays of the sun. This method is not recommended for jewelry containing metals.

Reload frequency: 

After a while, your stone will have transmitted all of its energy and will need effective recharging.

We invite you to purify it and recharge it regularly.  

If you use it daily or during an intense period (exam type), we recommend that you purify it once a week to cleanse it of negative energies and recharge it twice a week to bring it positive energies.

If you use it more rarely, you can purify it once a month and recharge it 2 to 3 times a month. 


Tips :  

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