Natural citrine palm stones from a fair trade factory in Madagascar. $12 each
Citrine is yellow quartz that occurs naturally when elements occur within the crystal lattice and change the colour. Its natural occurrence is quite rare and most citrine on the market has been made by heat treating amethyst. Brazil and Zambia both have significant natural citrine deposits. Natural citrine should be clear and have a warm golden yellow colour. Its name comes for the word “citron” or lemon.
Citrine is believed to cleanse negative energy and promote prosperity. It is one of the only stones that is believed to not need cleansing and clearing because of its powerful ability to transmute negative energy into positive energy. It is also believed to encourage confidence, dissolving of fears and bad dreams, and it balances the solar plexus chakra.
