Named after the lemon for its rich yellow to
orange/brown coloring, citrine is a member of
the quartz family. It was frequently used in
Hellenistic and Roman times for rings, intaglios
and other jewelry. Though its primary source in
Antiquity, as now, was Ceylon, deposits are also
known in Spain and the Ural Mountains.
Metaphysical science values citrine for its
transformation energy, which is thought to raise
low vibrations to a higher level, is making it
useful for healing and meditation. Citrine is also
considered as a lucky talisman to bring success
in all business ventures. In addition to its
curative and soothing properties, its warm,
glowing color brings pleasure to the senses.
