Wear Citrine close to the body in jewelry and keep it in sight in home or office.
Another yellow crystal is Amber, which is actually fossilized tree resin. Amber is a strong overall healer and cleanser with a warming and uplifting quality - ideal for those who need an extra energetic yet gentle "boost." Use it during the winter's darker months to bring a ray of sunshine to cold weather "blahs" as Amber quickly absorbs negative energies and builds a positive, sunny mood and disposition.
