Citrine, or yellow quartz, forms from a deep honey yellow to almost colorless. Citrine derives its color from colloidal iron hydrates within the quartz (Si02) solution. Citrine grows in Brazil, Uruguay, China, and Africa.
Associated with the Third Chakra for mental clarity, Citrine is comforting, warm and energizing and can alleviate self-destruction by supporting higher consciousness and a strong personality. Citrine supports any mental projects, so it is a great stone to use during a test or serious studies. It helps maintain concentration by supporting a clear and focused mental condition. Citrine can also be placed at the Crown Chakra as a connection to the God-Consciousness. Use this stone during meditation to help clear away the mental chatter.
