Despite of the already popular precious stones domineering the jewelry industry, the citrine has captured the hearts of people all over the globe especially as citrine rings are seen all over town. With its unique hues in different shades of orange, it is in fact not a total wonder. This precious stone is associated with the sun sign of Virgo, the birthstone for those born in November and is used to celebrate the 17th wedding anniversary.
The Citrine actually belongs to the quarts family and can come in either, orange, dark orange, yellow, yellow-brown and tangerine. In most cases, they are treated to intensify its underlying hues, remove blemishes and improve fire.
There are several deposits spread out all over the world such as Myanmar, Russia, Spain, Argentina, France, Uruguay, Madagascar, Zambia and Bolivia but the biggest one is found in Brazil which is also its largest supplier at present.
So what does having, giving or possession of citrine rings and other jewelry item mean?
SUCCESS is believed to come to a bearer of the stone as it brings with it abundance and prosperity. Because of this the citrine has been dubbed as the “prosperity or merchant stone”. There are even traditions and belies which state that putting one in a cash register, inside the pocket or wallet will maintain your good finances if not improve them.
It also brings in STABILITY as it is said to calm anger, depressions and frustrations. Likewise, it brings about happiness and positive outlook. This is the reason why many jewelers would suggest wearing one whenever you feel doubtful or anxious such as when going for a job interview.
BETTER SLEEP is another. This symbolism dates back to the ancient times when children were made to sleep with a citrine tucked under their pillows to ward off nightmares. The same holds true for those who suffer from insomnia. In fact they are believed to not only improve your dreams but they too help in recalling them later on.
We also have CONFIDENCE. This precious stone is dynamic enough but not overpowering to bring in just the right amount of confidence and will power.
SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT is also brought about. The wearing of citrine rings, bracelets, necklaces and similar jewelry helps align your chakras, promotes not only health but also spiritual development and peace. Try wearing one during your next yoga session. It never hurts to try.
