Body Collection: Citrine

Citrine is a "feel better" stone. It is also known to attract wealth, abundance and prosperity. Iron is the element which gives Citrine its warm golden colour. The colour is due to heat from volcanic and other earth activity. Extreme heat, whether naturally occurring or applied by man, will turn amethyst into a burnt golden colour. The properties of heated amethyst are similar to those of real citrine, just less intense. Citrine is found throughout the world in deposits wherever other quartz is present.
