With its bright golden color, it's impossible to think of Citrine as anything but a stone of luck and success. In fact, Citrine has a long history of being used in charms and amulets. When your heart feels heavy from depression or anxiety, Citrine lifts the spirits and lets you look on the sunny side of life. Optimism, joy, and mental clarity are commonly associated with this stone.
When you find it difficult to talk about certain situations, Citrine shines a metaphorical light on the problem. It opens up the lines of communication so a resolution can be reached.
Carrying a piece of Citrine can help you to feel well-rested and energized. When the body is overloaded with toxins, Citrine is said to help restore balance.
Be aware that Citrine is sensitive to heat. Protect your stones from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, or they may fade over time.

How should I use my gemstones?
Keep them close by, in your pocket, or in a small dish at your work space. Handle them often, as you focus on your needs and wishes. Sleep with them under your pillow. Place them on your altar. Whisper your wishes to them when no one else can hear you. The only thing we do NOT recommend doing is using your gemstones to infuse water that you will be drinking.
How can I cleanse my gemstones?
Over time, gemstones can pick up negative energies as they are used. Many different methods can be employed to cleanse your stones. Bury them in a small container of salt for a few days. Hold them in running water (this is not recommended for soft gemstones like selenite or jet). Let them sit overnight in the light from a full moon. Place them where a fresh breeze can pass over them.
