Over the centuries, Citrine acquired a reputation as a "success stone" that promotes prosperity and abundance. It's sometimes nicknamed "merchant's stone" because superstitious merchants of times past put Citrine in their cashboxes to bring in money. However, Citrine supposedly also brings about success in unexpected ways. In addition to manifesting abundance, Citrine also promotes generosity, leading those who benefit from its powers to share their wealth with others.
Citrine also is thought to enhance mental clarity, confidence and will power.
