Stories and legends

Citrine owes its name to the Latin “citrus” which means a lemon. This name is given to it because of its yellow color. This fine stone is transparent and has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. It belongs to the quartz family and can be found under the name “yellow hyaline quartz”. It is composed of silicon dioxide and iron, which gives it this beautiful yellow color, more or less pale.

This natural citrine stone has been known for millennia. Around 480 BC, Old Testament writings describe the presence of a citrine on the breastplate of Aaron, brother of Moses. Indeed, he wore on the breastplate of his breastplate twelve stones representing the twelve tribes of Israel, including a citrine. Later, the Gregorian calendar linked its twelve stones to the twelve months of the year. Citrine is associated with the month of November.

The legend of Anahi

In a region on the borders of Brazil and Bolivia, legend has it that a sorcerer captured the Cloak of Dawn and locked it in a crystal. Annoyed, the sun then decided to hide it in the depths of the Earth, which later became the mine of the Ayoeros tribe. They then extracted citrine from this mine.

Later, the princess of this tribe, named Anahi and descendant of the sorcerer, fell in love with a Spanish conquistador but her people refused to see her leave the tribe. He preferred to sacrifice her, rather than see her go to Spain. As Anahi lay dying in her husband's arms, she gave him a citrine stone, a symbol of their eternal love. In the 19th century, the miners who worked in this mine say that sometimes they heard the cries of the conquistador, mourning his sweet and tender wife Anahi.

Since antiquity

The benefits of citrine have been known since Antiquity. In ancient civilizations, it was renowned for being a true talisman. It helped fight against bad luck and had the reputation of protecting against the bites of venomous animals.

Artemis and Apollo had taught him medicine and to perfectly master nature and its qualities. He thus discovered that natural citrine had great healing and protective powers.

Furthermore, the Romans used this stone in the manufacture of cuts and cabochons. They also believed that natural citrine protected them from animal bites, poisonous insects, bad luck and negative emotions.

In the 15th century, the name citrine was given to the stone by the German scholar George Bauer, also named Agricola.

To recharge it, simply place it in the rays of the sun very early in the morning or in the rays of the moon outside of the full moon. Do not place it in direct sunlight as this could alter its color.
