Additional Information

Citrine is warming, comforting and energising like the sun - a true stone of joy! It dissolves inertia, and stimulates creativity independence and a desire to move forward. Citrine is also mood lifting, and therefore used in the treatment of depression. It is sometimes referred to as the ‘merchant’s stone’, and kept in purses and shop tills, as well as in the wealth corner of the home (in Feng Shui), as it is purported to attract abundance. It can be an aid in treating digestive complaints, especially with the stomach itself, and supports filtration organs, particularly the liver, kidneys, pancreas and gall bladder. If worn with the termination pointing downwards, citrine can have a gentle grounding effect.
