Properties of Natural Citrine Vs Heat Treated?
My opinion on this subject is that both crystals can be used but they are a little different. I prefer to work with natural Citrine because I think it is more powerful, in addition to its abundance drawing properties, it can be cleansing and detoxifying. Some natural Citrine crystals can have a high vibration energy.
Heat Treated Citrine feel lighter in energy, it can be used for prosperity and positive thinking too but lacks the cleansing power and the umph of the natural crystals for me. I see it more as a substitute where natural Citrine is not available or affordable. I know people who have effectively worked with the heat treated stones, also some people may need that bright orange color
☀️The difference between Natural citrine and heated Citrine (aka baked amethyst)☀️☀️
I know many are confused or don’t know much about the difference between natural citrine and treated citrine. Heat treated citrine carries citrine properties, It’s a more affordable way to acquire citrine for your collection, Natural citrine can be very pricey, Heat treated is man speeding up the natural process that the Earth usually does naturally. Heated citrine is actually Baked Amethyst believe it or not wether it’s baked by the Earth or baked by man.
We actually have some natural smoky Citrine towers that just came in with phantoms, These are possibly heated to bring out the phantoms and rainbows but they are in fact considered natural Citrine. Links to our citrine in comments below natural and treated.
Let’s learn WHY on Earth 🌏 would anyone HEAT amethyst? And why would they call it Citrine!?
Most “Citrine” on the market today is in fact heat treated amethyst... natural citrine can be very expensive and hard to find! It’s accepted to call baked amethyst “Citrine” and is sold as such.
Let’s learn ......
WHY heat treated and not natural?
The Earth naturally heats amethyst and that is natural citrine...
the man altered for lack of better words is man rushing the process and heating instead of waiting for the earth to produce it.
This explains it:
Mother Earth naturally creates citrine with her geo-thermal heat source; from within the mantle (her deluxe gourmet geo-kitchen!) by heating amethyst or smoky quartz (both are SiO2 (quartz), just as citrine is).
The Earth can also produce the deep brown citrine, aka Madeira citrine. This is more rare than your usual lighter honey or white wine colored natural citrine. Actually, all types of natural citrine are considered relatively rare. They’re no where near as bountiful as amethyst so they can get be hard to find & a bit pricey. Be prepared.
When we lab-heat citrine we’re simply mimicking what Mama Earth does. You usually begin with a poorly or lightly colored Brazilian amethyst. Then you heat it in a kiln to over 900°F (482°C). If you want it to go dark yellow or to red-brown (Madeira color) then you go up to 1022-1040°F (550-560°C). Some smoky quartz can turn citrine color as cool as 390°F (199°C).
