Orange Crystals have a bright and warm energy. When you hold an orange crystal it reminds you of the warmth of the sun, fun, and tropical images.
Have you ever been out in the sun on a warm spring day and felt like your whole body was being cleansed? Like the sun, orange crystals help to clean and eliminate dirty energy. Orange crystal energy also helps to promote creativity and enthusiasm.
Chakra: The color orange is associated with the second chakra (sexual and lower creativity).
Three popular orange crystals are Orange Citrine, Orange Calcite and Carnelian.
Citrine has been called the Sun Stone, capturing pure sunlight in a crystal. Like the sun, the healing properties of Citrine help to cleanse and energize. Citrine is the perfect manifesting stone because it both clears away blocks to prosperity and attracts abundance.
Citrine is a variety of quartz. It’s color ranges from pale yellow to brown. The deeper yellow and orange colored Citrine is often heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz.
In feng shui, Citrine is used for attracting money or business.
Orange Calcite is a powerful cleanser of energy. It helps connect your mind and emotions dissolving old patterns of negativity. Use Citrine’s energy to melt away your fears, growing your success and helping you to believe in yourself.
It is a softer mineral, so it should be stored separately from other crystals to avoid scratching. When you look at a straight line through calcite crystals you will see a 2 wavy line because of this it was considered to have magical powers doubling your good fortune. Calcite was used in Ancient Egypt for ritual bowls.
Carnelian has a stimulating effect that gives you the strength to carry on even in tough times. It helps dispel negative energies and replace them with positive energy. It also increases concentration and understanding and awakens your creative talents. If you feel “stuck” in your daily routine Carnelian can help you move forward in your life.
Carnelian is a type of quartz. It is usually characterized by its distinct red-orange to brownish-red color. It gets its color from iron impurities within the stone. Sometimes it is confused with red jasper, but jasper is opaque (you can’t see through it), whereas carnelian has some degree of translucency when held to the light. Sometimes agates are dyed and heated to appear like carnelian. Carnelian has been used for thousands of years as a talisman.
