If you prefer to use natural crystals, the color of the natural Citrine Crystals may be pale yellow, honey yellow or even with very little color at all.

The color of the natural crystals may be a very different color to many of the other crystals, as they are often a very pale yellow color.

Not only is the natural stone just as powerful for manifestation, but in addition it will help you to release etheric blockages within your chakras.

These blockages may have been holding you back from allowing your greatest good. Its energy is often stronger than the heat treated stone.

 My Final Thoughts: Is Citrine A Controversial Crystal?

The color of Citrine Crystals may be a dark orange color, and this is an indication of the heat treatment that these stones have gone through.

Although some say this is a controversial crystal, this process actually mimics what happens naturally within the earth.

A clue to their having been heated is not only the color but the way the stones are formed as the Citrine that is heated looks similar to Amethyst.

Heat-treated Amethyst is sometimes called burnt Amethyst, and it is not always a golden yellow color.

It may simply have a reddish tint but may also be a dark orange-brown, which is a clue to it having being heated.

In particular, many of the large Citrines do resemble Amethyst crystals.

Heat treated CitrineThis cluster is probably heat treated Citrine

FAQ: Does heat treating harm the crystals?

An important fact to remember is that all stones have been naturally heated during their time within the earth, so you know that the heat treatment will not harm them at all.

Through its immersion in fire it alters to a new stone, an analogy for its action when you apply its vibration to aid you spiritually.

Although most people think of Citrine Crystals as being stones for manifestation there are also a large number of healing properties that they embody.

It does not matter if they are natural Citrine or heat treated stone

These crystals are sometimes called burnt amethyst, when the stone is a deep orange or brown color and Amethyst is a potent healing stone in its own right. 

Whether you are using the well known purple stone or the yellow Citrine stones that may be Amethyst that has been turned into Citrine by heat treatment, it still embodies the healing energy of the violet flame.
