Natural Citrine is like vibrant crystallized sunshine! ☼ Everyone should have at least one true natural Citrine in one form or another.
Natural Citrine Crystals are very different than the heat treated ones, both physically and energetically, and distinction should be made. Heat treated Citrine have their place and purpose, but they are not one and the same as the natural ones.
The main physical distinctions between natural Citrine and the heated treated Citrine are the colors and Crystal formation. Heat treated Citrine were once Amethyst Crystals, which were artificially heated treated at high temperature until their colors changed, which often resulted in having that bright burned orange yellow tint to them, and most are formed as geode clusters initially. Natural Citrine have more gentle uniform golden yellow colors that range from light pale yellow to dark golden yellow with smokiness appearance, and most often are formed as prismatic Crystals. Energetically, simply put, natural Citrine Crystals are like natural sunlight, while heated treated Citrine Crystals are like artificial sunlight.
