Citrine is one of my favorites because it does not collect negative energy as it helps the wearer work on both physical and more etheric problems. It never needs cleansing. It is a quartz family member with colors from light yellows to deep amber . It's energies help to align the chakras, it brings lightness to the root chakra, clarity to the 3rd chakra at the solar plexus. In faceted form Citrine helps the crown chakra combine intelligence and the perfection of the crown chakra to encourage the awakening of the mind. Citrine is optimism, new beginnings, and forward looking to the East and the rising sun.
