Here are the 4 ways to charge Citrine effectively

1. Sunlight

This reloading method is the most used for the simplicity of its implementation.


To recharge the stone, just put it in the sun to replenish its revitalizing energy.

You can charge Citrine with the energizing energy of the Sun, however, you should absolutely keep an eye on the period of the Sun exposure. 30 minutes or less is enough time to charge your crystal with sunlight and that is because lengthy exposure to the UV rays can weaken and fade the natural yellow colors of Citrine.

For safer recharging, expose your Citrine crystal to the gentle morning sun, because during this period of the day the sun rays are not as harsh and invasive as they will be during the middle of the day.

2. Full moonlight

If you want to be extra cautious while charging Citrine, the moonlight recharging technique is considered a risk-free alternative (unlike the Sunlight method).

Full moonlight

Lunar light is a reflection of the sun’s rays, therefore it is a softer and less aggressive charging energy stream.

To do this, put your Citrine stone directly under the moonlight, don’t put it behind glass or window, because you want the gentle recharging moonlight to reach directly your stone.

The ideal is to charge the stone overnight during the Full Moon.

It is during this exact period that the moon reflects the sunlight the most.

If you attempt to recharge during other phases of the moon, the light will not be refreshing enough and not as potent as the light emitted by the full moon, and you may also have to repeat this operation several times.

So, mark in your calendar the exact date of the full moon (you can find the date with a simple search on google by typing “full moon calendar” and the current month in the search bar) to be able to profit from this magical opportunity to charge your Citrine crystal.

3. Big Amethyst or Quartz geode

This method is among the most effective charging methods but requires the possession of an amethyst or quartz geode.

Big Amethyst

Amethyst is recognized for its great cleansing powers, it works on purifying energy fields from negative and unharmonious frequencies which set other crystals back to their original, fresh, and raw healing powers.

As for quartz, it is appreciated for its ability as an energy amplifier which plays a significant role in reloading the healing vibrations of other crystals such as Citrine.

This technique is very easy and straightforward to implement.

Simply place the Citrine stone on the geode to absorb the negative and inharmonious energies held by this yellow crystal.

It is interesting to mention that the reloading process is even faster when the shape of the geode is reconstructed with the two mineral pieces (an Amethyst and Quartz mixture).

So, we can safely and confidently say that all stones are likely to be recharged via this option, as it is totally a damage-free charging technique.

4. Intentions

Reviving Citrine with your intentions is a powerful charging technique that you can combine with other reloading ways that I just mentioned above.


So, here is a simple intention sitting ritual that you can use to charge Citrine using your intentions:

Hold the stone in your hand.

Take few slow and deep breaths.

Close your eyes and focus on your breath and your intentions/visualization by drawing a mental picture or movie of the things that you absolutely desire to manifest (on a tangible or emotional level).

Citrine is the ultimate crystal of manifestation, good fortune, abundance, happiness, and prosperity, therefore, you can also charge your Citrine crystal by repeating your own affirmations to amplify the manifestation powers of this stone and to attract the things that you aspire.

Example of affirmation that you can repeat:

  • I am confident.
  • I am successful.
  • I am abundant.
  • My life is filled with the energy of abundance and happiness.
  • I embrace my confidence, strength, and self-worth.
  • I am willing to move forward with courage and to create a flourishing, abundant, and happy life.
For effective charging, it is best to not just rely on intentions to make your Citrine crystal regain its healing powers once again.

Combining this method with other tools (sunlight, moonlight, or crystals geodes) is the best and most beneficial way to be sure that you recharged your stone efficiently.
