We have visited the mine at Mansa and seen the process of mining this citrine. The work is primarily done with hand tools and is a laborious process. We did a workshop with the miners about better caring for the crystals as they are taken out and as they are transported.
Citrine is the November Birthstone and is widely considered to be a "master healer" type of quartz crystal by those who work with crystals for their metaphysical properties. Citrine is an essential part of the toolkit for crystal bodywork, reiki, meditation, crystal gridding, and creating sacred spaces. The golden radiance of citrine provides warmth and increases feelings of abundance.
