Citrine is one of the most powerful and popular gemstones available today. It is not only beautiful but its healing properties are known to have been used as far back as 300 BC. In the first century A.D. It was being used to fashion cabochon rings and pendants. Queen Victoria is well known for her love of the stone and it became the fashion for Scottish men to wear them in their kilts or soldiers to have their swords embossed with them.
Being an avid follower of the Law of Attraction, Citrine is the stone that I most often use as its main benefit lies within manifestations. Exquisite, in a shade of subtle yellow and orange, it is no wonder it is the birth stone for November with its autumn hues and reminiscent of the dwindling light of the setting sun. It was created in heat and is known to harness the power of the sun, transferring that energy to those who utilise it.
Since its main use is in manifestation, it has great power in bringing our visualisations into reality and helps to guide us along the right path to achieving our goals. If you have been struggling to manifest what you want from the universe, try carrying a small piece of Citrine in your pocket or wearing it in a special piece of jewellery. It has a way of attracting to you the right people or circumstances to bring you closer to what you are trying to obtain. When used alongside meditation it can open locked doors deep within our minds to show us images and neural pathways we have been trying to activate. It guides us in harnessing the universal life force and helps us get deep into that meditative state.
Another benefit of Citrine is its ability to attract wealth. It is a great money stone, bringing in wealth and enabling the carrier to preserve abundance once they have attained it. This makes Citrine the perfect stone for people who are starting out on a new business venture.
