Citrine - Fulfilling Your Potential

Citrine and the yellow ray loosen your hold on all that no longer serves you, so that you may progress to the next higher state of being. Citrine unwinds tension and increases flexibility in the cells, organs, and body as a whole, thereby encouraging your body to relax and move into greater alignment. Citrine gradually opens inner hearing. It helps you fulfill your spiritual potential by encouraging you to embrace ever-higher states of consciousness.

Citrine Chips

Unlike most of the gemstones we offer, Citrine is most effective when worn as polished rounded chips instead of spheres. The irregularity of the chips’ shape helps break up old states of consciousness, thus helping Citrine deliver its benefits more effectively.

Benefits of Wearing a Therapeutic Citrine Necklace

Citrine prepares your body, emotions, and mind to accept a greater flow of the yellow color ray. The yellow ray is the aspect of the life force that helps us release what no longer serves us and to accept what we need in order to move to the next higher state. This aspect of Citrine also has a greater overall purpose—to help you fulfill your spiritual potential by encouraging you to embrace ever-higher states of consciousness.

Citrine works to loosen blockages and increase flexibility through the wave-like motion characteristic of the yellow ray. Citrine works gradually, one step at a time, to increase flexibility on a cellular level. This flexibility enhances the ability of the substances within a cell to move around as required—either within the cell or through the cell membrane. These substances can include the cell's organelles and fluids. Any intracellular processes that require movement are also enhanced and made more efficient.

If enough Citrine is worn over an adequate length of time, this flexibility will begin to extend beyond the cellular level to the organs and organ systems to which the cells belong. Most obvious will be Citrine's effect on the muscular system. After wearing a Citrine necklace for a while, you may find that you can stretch a little farther.

As a living organism, the body wants all its components to be in proper alignment. When any component is out of alignment, the flow of life force that keeps the body alive and gives it spiritual sustenance diminishes. As the body ages, it grows more and more out of alignment. Citrine can help the body—at any age—relax to the point where the life force can rush in, take hold, and move the physical body into a healthier state of alignment.

Citrine’s ability to loosen blockages and increase flexibility can be felt as a stirring or unwinding effect. This unwinding supports Citrine’s ability to move the body into greater alignment. When worn as a necklace, Citrine unwinds the entire body, especially the stomach chakra. If the stomach chakra is stuck or tightly shut, the Citrine will gently massage it and encourage it to open.

In someone with a yellow-ray deficiency, emotions are often out of balance. By providing yellow-ray nourishment, Citrine fosters awareness of one’s emotional center. Thus, Citrine can greatly benefit those who react in emotional extremes or whose emotional nature lacks balance.

The Sound of Citrine

Sound is just as integral a part of the life force as light. Thus, each color ray of the life force expresses a unique sound as well as a unique color. Citrine's crystalline matrix amplifies the sound of the yellow ray. Subtle sounds such as this are often difficult to hear amid the noises of daily living. If you wear Citrine continually, these sounds will become more audible. The more you listen to the sound of Citrine, the more your ears will be cleansed and the more clearly you will hear the subtle sounds of the universe.

This cleansing of your inner hearing may allow your ears to open to the different sounds of all the gemstones. Each gemstone carries its own music, a unique and enchantingly beautiful sound. If you can hear the sound of a gemstone, you will become more attuned to its energy, and its powers will increase many fold. Citrine’s sound is heard more easily than the sounds carried by the other color-ray gemstones. Thus, by opening your inner ears, Citrine can also prepare you to accept the greatest benefits that any gemstone can give.

Citrine and the Eliminatory System

Each of the seven color rays of the life force is particularly healing and nourishing to certain aspects of the physical body. The yellow ray nourishes and supports the organs of elimination, including the skin, bladder, urinary tract, kidneys, intestines, and eliminative aspects of the liver. Consequently, wearing Citrine can help strengthen these parts of the body and resolve certain conditions associated with them.

Increasing Citrine’s Effectiveness

In most cases, one necklace of Citrine works exclusively on a cellular level unless its effects are magnified in some way. The best way to magnify Citrine's effects is to wear a necklace of very high quality Citrine or to wear additional Citrine—either by wearing a necklace with larger beads or by wearing a second or third necklace.

Citrine Rounded Chips vs. Spheres

Citrine breaks up hardened energies and fixed states of consciousness. Although Citrine in spherical form produces this effect, rounded chips enhance it. A gemstone's energy radiates from a sphere in a perfectly regular fashion, while it escapes from a rounded chip in an irregular one. In the case of Citrine, this irregularity helps break up old states of consciousness, thus helping Citrine deliver its benefits more easily.

Therapeutic Quality Citrine

Only pure-yellow Citrine can draw the yellow ray to the body. The color of therapeutic Citrine ranges from light to deep yellow and sometimes possesses a golden glow. Very pale Citrine does not manifest yellow-ray energy strongly enough to produce therapeutic effects. Dark-amber or brownish Citrine can actually be detrimental, because it muddies the energy flow to the atoms, molecules, cells, and organs that are dependent on the yellow ray for life. Indeed, any degree of black or brown within Citrine is a toxic contaminant.

Internal flaws dull Citrine's appearance and diminish its ability to express the yellow ray. Slight surface flaws are acceptable, as are a very small number of internal cracks, but only if they occur in Citrine that is pure, bright yellow.

Ideal Citrine is flawless and the true yellow of the rainbow. Citrine that displays the special optical property known as gem candescence radiates a greatly enhanced flow of Citrine energy.

Therapies and Procedures


Placing Citrine on the crown chakra while performing a movement exercise helps "unwind" tense muscles, thus allowing the bones and joints to move into greater alignment.


Citrine is used to relax tightness in a localized area of the body. This therapy can be used as either a primary treatment or a pre-treatment for another therapy. A Citrine necklace is held with the left hand and applied to the body and in the aura.


Two Citrine necklaces are applied to the ears and in the aura to help develop inner hearing. This therapy enhances the ability to hear the nonphysical sounds expressed in all of life's manifestations, such as plants and gemstones.
