Kundalini Citrine is a natural smoky Citrine from the Republic of the Congo. It is also known as Lwena (Luena) Citrine because it is found near the town of Luena in Haut-Lomami in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Both individual crystals and cascading crystals clusters are common in this region. Individual specimens are often damaged in some way as the mining processes are primitive, and supply is irregular. The value of Kundalini in the marketplace is based on the specimen's size, color, and condition, with the condition being a significant element. Particular value is placed on specimens of main crystals in clusters with smaller crystals around the base. Some believe this formation brings much stronger Yin healing energy.
Natural Citrine does not hold or accumulate negative energy but rather transmutes, dissipates, and grounds it, making it extremely protective for the environment. It works out problems on both the physical and subtle levels, transforming negative thoughts and feelings into positive ones. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed. The other is Kyanite.
Citrine is a transparent, yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in color from pale to golden yellow, honey, or almost brown, and may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning "lemon."
