Each week I have been educating you on a crystal of your choice through our website blog. We are working our way through the alphabet, & you can have your say on what crystal we discuss via our Instagram page @lumigemstones ๐Ÿ’—

This week I am hoping to share with you lots of information about Citrine. There's lots to talk about with Citrine, so I'm sure you'll learn something new ๐Ÿ™‚

Most Citrine available is actually heat treated (or 'baked') Amethyst; including tumblestones that we have available on our website. Most heat treated Amethyst (aka Citrine) is found in Brazil, whereas most natural Citrine is found in Russia & Madagascar.

So, the most popular question we receive about Citrine is "how can I tell if Citrine is 'real' or not?" The easiest way to tell if your Citrine is 'real' or 'heat treated Amethyst' is by the colour. The colour of heat treated Amethyst is often a warmer shade of yellow or orange, whereas genuine Citrine is a cool shade of yellow, with an almost grey hint to it. Price is another indicator of what you are buying; genuine Citrine is a lot more expensive. The easiest way to trust what you are buying is to buy only purchasing from reputable companies or sellers, unfortunately there a lot of fake crystals on the market nowadays, & it's pretty easy to get stung, especially when buying from abroad. If it seems too good to be true, then it probably is!

Another question we are often asked is "do you think heat treated Amethyst is fake?" Now, it's important to remember that there isn't really a right or wrong answer to this, opinions vary. My personal opinion is that all crystals are magical, therefore I don't see heat treated Amethyst as 'fake', however, I do believe that customers should know what they are buying & it should not be mis-sold or sold as something that it's not.

Now lets get on to the magical properties of this beautiful stone ...

Much like its colour, Citrine is often compared to the Sun, & is commonly known as 'the sunshine crystal' โ˜€๏ธ the properties of Citrine include joyfulness, happiness, abundance, good luck & wealth. It's a very positive crystal & full of bouncy energy! It boosts your zest for life & brings an abundance of optimisim.

Citrine cleanses your chakras & opens your intuition.ย It attracts wealth, prosperity & success; especially succesful if you work with The Law Of Attraction. Citrine is a very powerful manifestation crystal, & I'd highly recommend it if you know what you want to welcome in to your life.

I highly recommend Citrine for job interviews, studying, exams, driving tests etc; anything where you might need that extra boost of good luck & concentration! ๐Ÿง  Citirine raises self-esteem & self-confidence. It promotes motivation, activates creativity & encourages self-expression.

Citrine releases negative traits, depression, fears & phobias, it's a very uplifting crystal.
