Citrine: Stone of the Month for November

Posted by Carolina Mendoza in

Since time immemorial, Citrine has been associated with the sun, the gods and abundance. Due to its energetic properties, its qualities and its warm color, it has been used in various ways throughout history; being today one of the favorites of Ikcha designs.

It is one of the stones of the month of November and is known as the Stone of Abundance. It is related to the solar plexus chakra, which is linked to financial success and personal self-realization. In addition, it is believed that it is capable not only of attracting, but of maintaining and encouraging generosity.

It is also known as the Merchants' Stone, which is why many merchants keep citrines in their cash registers to attract abundance.

What is Citrine?

  • Citrine belongs to the quartz family. As such, it has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale, which measures scratch resistance.
  • The name comes from the French citron "lemon".
  • Natural Citrine is relatively rare. In the interior of the Earth it is formed after the heating of Amethyst, its violet colored sister stone. It is also usually obtained artificially by exposing amethysts to heat to obtain their yellow / orange color.

  • Beginning in the 17th century in Scotland, large crystals from the citrine stone were used to make dagger hilts, which today are found in important museums, more beautiful. They also used this stone for pins on their kilts and for men.
