Find out the healing properties of Citrine, also known as the “Bankers Stone”. The Citrine gemstone promotes joy, abundance, and creativity.
Citrine promotes strength and creativity as well as clearing negativity and helps to set intentions. Use Citrine in conjunction with other healing stones to amplify your intentions.
Natural Citrine is a pale golden color semi-precious quartz stone. There is some cloudiness in the stone making it appear pale in color. This is more rare and not found as often.
Heat treated Citrine has a brighter clear yellow color. On the other hand stones can be as dark as golden brown or burnt amber in color and can resemble Topaz. Citrine gets its yellowish color by the amount of iron content.
There seems to be some question about whether natural or heat treated Citrine is best. Both have different vibrational qualities and I think it is more about which stone you are drawn to wearing or holding. When picking out any stone go to the ones you are drawn to and make you happy.

Physical Healing Properties of Citrine
Citrine works best when it is close to your lower three chakras. So, try carrying the stone in your pants pocket for a few days and journal about anything you notice. Furthermore, you can also place this stone under your pillow while you sleep at night.
Keep a journal by your bed and note any dreams and thoughts that come to you when you wake up. A dream journal is helpful even if you don’t place the stone under your pillow. If that is uncomfortable, try placing it on your nightstand instead.
