"Citrine is one of the two minerals on the planet which does not hold and accumulate negative energy, but dissipates and transmutes it, working out problems on both the physical and subtle levels. It is useful for balancing the yin-yang energy and for aligning the chakras with the ethereal plane. Citrine, especially in the faceted form, stimulates the crown chakra, allowing for synthesis between the intellect and total perfection; it is, therefore, quite helpful in problem solving, for facilitating recognition of resolutions to mental conundrums, and for promotion mental awareness on a moment to moment basis. It is said to stimulate openness and to accelerate the wakening of the mind. It is also an excellent stone for smoothing family or group problems"
"Apatite can be used to stimulate the intellect and to promote realization that ones strength occurs through both spiritual avenues and via love; hence, dissolving aloofness and negativity."
