Striking sun-coloured citrine is the birthstone of November and the zodiac stone of Cancer (21st June to 22nd July).

The gemstone is thought to take its name from the French ‘citron’ meaning lemon, due to its yellowy hues, which range from light yellow to orangey brown – making it a perfect summer zodiac sign and autumnal birthstone.

Citrine meanings

Known as The Merchant’s Stone, citrine is a stone that encourages and maintains wealth. It is renowned for its manifestation properties and attracts success and positivity.

Because of its yellow colouring, citrine is believed to carry the power of the sun, bringing energy, creativity and comfort.

Citrine uses

Throughout history, magical citrine has been used decoratively – from the Ancient Greeks between 300 and 150 BC to 17th century Scots who used citrine on their swords for decoration, and also for success in battles.

It was favoured during the Art Deco era when glamourous Hollywood starlets wore oversized citrine gems in rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, as beautiful costume jewellery.

Nowadays, pretty citrine is used for manifestation, enhancing imagination and encouraging wealth.

It also inspires sunny dispositions, just like the sun itself, turning negative thoughts, feelings and energy into positive ones. For this reason, citrine makes a great crystal for self-improvement and self-healing.

How and where citrine is formed

Rare citrine is found in igneous and metamorphic rocks, as well as in sands and gravels.

Most modern day citrine is found in Brazil, with the Rio Grande do Sol state in the south being one of the largest citrine producers. Natural citrine can also be found in Russia, France and Madagascar, along with Britain, Spain and the African continent.

The darker colours such as sunset-like golden orange, are harder to find and more valuable, providing they are natural. However, many of today’s darker gems are in fact heat-treated amethyst, which creates a reddish tint.  To ensure you’re purchasing natural citrine, look for lighter yellow shades.
