Citrine is a variety of quartz with traces of iron so it glows from pale yellow to a lemon-tinted smoky color. Natural, untreated citrine is quite rare.
Citrine challenges us to to consider our relationships to abundance, money, and generosity. It asks:
- What are your beliefs about money?
- How do you feel about supporting your self in this life? Supporting others? Contributing to your community?
- How do you feel when you give generously? What about when you receive generosity?
These citrine polished points are beautiful examples of natural citrine, with pale colors and minor inclusions that sparkle and throw rainbows. The majority of citrine sold is actually amethyst that has been heat treated, resulting in intense orange and bright yellow colors. Natural citrine grows in points and has a clarity and consistent color throughout that distinguishes it from the treated amethyst quartz.
Place citrine in the wealth corner of your home or desk (the far left corner from the entrance) or near the register in a store. It will remind you to shine your energy on the areas of your life where you cultivate your work and wealth, so it's best to distance it from the bedroom and sleeping spaces.
These quartz points have cut bases.
This natural citrine is from MINEC, a family-operated distribution company that works with smaller mines in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil. MINEC strives to be a fair trade operation by paying fair wages and market rates, building schools in mining communities and showcasing their mining partners' operations on publicly available videos.
