Citrine is a member of the quartz family and dates back thousands of years. In the Roman Catholic and Latin versions of the Old Testament, citrine was known as chrysolitus (Greek for golden stone). In 17th century Europe, citrine was largely used by Scottish weapon makers to decorate dagger handles. Soon enough diamonds gained mainstream popularity, and Citrine was overshadowed. In the 19th Century, Citrine found new admirers and soon it came back even more powerful and glorious than ever before. An interesting fact in Citrine’s history is that due to Queen Victoria’s love for colored gems, Citrine became the traditional stone used for kilt gems.
Citrine’s Mystical Powers
Citrine is referred to as “The Success Stone”, because it is believed to deliver good fortune and success to the wearer. Furthermore, it can also be referred to as “The Stone Of The Merchants” with the belief that it will promote success in business if placed in the cash drawer of a shop, worn or carried. Looking more into Citrine’s mystical beliefs, it is said that wearing the citrine stone at night will conquer nocturnal fears, rid of anger and sadness including protecting the wearer from sudden death too.
