Citrine is one of the few minerals on the planet which does not hold and accumulate negative energy, but dissipates and transmutes it, working out problems on both the physical and subtle levels. It therefore never needs clearing or cleansing.
This stone has been called a stone for the merchant, and placing a cluster or a crystal in one's cash box can produce more income for a merchant. It also helps maintain a state of wealth.
Citrine is also useful for balancing the yin-yang energy. It activates, opens, and energizes the sacral and solar plexus chakras, directing, via personal power, creativity, and intelligent decisiveness, the energy necessary to enhance the physical body. It stimulates both mental focus and endurance. It stimulates the intuitive self and promotes intact with the higher forces of intelligence.
It also illuminates the energy of the base chakra, delivering both comfort and optimism. It can help one to dispense with the fundamental level of fear. Citrine further promotes a radiance from within the self, culminating in a constant happy disposition.
Especially in the faceted form, it stimulates the crown chakra, allowing for synthesis between the intellect and total perfection; it is, therefore, quite helpful in problem solving. It is said to stimulate openness and to accelerate the wakening of the mind.
