Citrine Healing Properties

Natural Citrine! Did you know that most Citrine is actually heat-treated low-quality Amethyst? These Zambian Amethysts are the real thing. These Citrine are smooth from their time in tumbling drums, they are mostly skinny and sometimes have funky shapes depending on how they grew in the Earth. Each one is joyful and vibrant and ready to bring lemon-scented clean energy into your life!

Ethically Sourced Citrine

Know where your crystals come from

This Citrine comes from artisanal miners in the North Western Provence, Zambia. The deposit is located on the border of Zambia and the DR Congo, about four hours away from the nearest town. Artisanal mining for Citrine in this region typically has a low environmental impact and would be relatively low risk for miners.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Citrine Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2015  •  Updated August 2022  •  Read Time: 8 minutes
Citrine is the golden yellow variety of Quartz and one of the happiest healing crystals.  It is found within Amethyst mines alongside Black Tourmaline, but occasionally it forms its own distinct deposits.  Natural Citrine is usually pale gold.  The vibrant yellow Citrine that is commonly sold in crystal shops is actually heat-treated low-quality Amethyst.  Citrine is one of the few  “self-cleansing” crystals that constantly cleans energy and never gets drained.  It is the energy equivalent of citrus-scented soap.  It shares its joyful vibration generously and invites us to march to our own drum and dance to the music of our heart.

    I selected and purchased a stone for each chakra, so this review refers to all of them. They are wonderful. It is nice to deal with someone who cares where the stones come from. And Jule is so helpful and responsive. And knowledgeable. Plus she takes time to select each stone for you. Can’t recommend her highly enough. You won’t be disappointed.

    Just received your crystal. I am so glad I reached out personally for a pretty crystal. Personal touches really help, I notice! This looks so good and the best part is it’s geometry. It is tumbled but still has its quartzy six point side to it.

    My experience upon opening up the package and visiting with my crystals: I felt like they were old friends being returned to me!! My heart filled with tenderness and I teared up! I was “reunited” I thought to myself and I began kissing them as if they were family or loved ones that I missed and I was lovingly welcoming them home to me….My hands began to get very, very warm and my palms were sweating when I held them collectively. Thank you JULIE for bringing them “BACK” into my life! You are truly BLESSED with the power of selecting crystals! Not only do I know these crystals are truly MINE but that they also belong to one another.. We are going to do GOOD things Together!
