Citrine Crystal Tower - Brazil
Citrine crystal tower from Brazil. This sparkling Citrine crystal has a beautiful combination of white quartz with golden-honey Citrine. Some of the world's finest Citrine comes from Brazil, Zaire and Zambia.
All Citrine in this warm color begins as Amethyst, it's then heated which turns the Amethyst Quartz into a brightened sunny golden Citrine Quartz.
Most Citrine on the market is heat treated Amethyst. Treating gemstones with heat is a common practice used in the gem industry to change the color of stones, it changes the metaphysical properties and energies of the stone but it does not damage the stone, as heat and pressure are already part of the natural process of gems forming within the Earth.
In general, Citrine that has a bright "citrus" color such as lemon-yellow (sometimes with a greenish tint), tangerine or golden-orange is heat treated.
We also carry natural Citrine from Zaire and Zambia, Africa. Natural Citrine is more rare and has more subtle neutral tones in shades of gold, from light gold to topaz-gold and golden brown.

Citrine Metaphysical Properties And Benefits (Heat Treated)
Citrine, the stone of optimism, prosperity and happiness, was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C. It was worked into cabochon stones for rings in Greece and Rome in the first and second centuries A.D. Citrine opens the inner doors to increased clarity of thought, enhanced creativity and magnified powers of will and manifestation.
Citrine awakens creative imagination and enables one to be more assertive and outgoing. It can assist one in setting proper emotional boundaries and in clearly maintaining them. Citrine brings prosperity, optimism, playfulness and happiness into one's energy systems. It stimulates the mind and can assist in learning. It's been used to support weight loss, metabolism and to increase energy. The vibration of Citrine activates and harmonizes the second, third and sixth chakra energy centers. - The Book Of Stones by Robert Simmons, Naisha Ahsian.
