Citrine Description:

The name “citrine” arises from the Greek word meaning citron because of its color resemblance to the citrus fruit. Citrine is a natural, yellow to golden brown colored, semi-precious gemstone from the Quartz family. Like all quartz, citrine is made of oxygen and silicon atoms arranged in a triangular pyramidal pattern. Citrine is found in many locations, including Brazil, Canada, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, and Uruguay.

    Citrine Color:

A saturated yellow to reddish-orange color free of brownish tints is prized in citrine. However, in the contemporary market, citrine’s most popular shade is an earthy hue (a deep brownish or reddish-orange). Considering natural citrine is rare, most of the citrine on the market is the effect of heat treatment, which causes some amethyst to turn color from pale purple to attractive yellow. It is the hue that determines the richness of the resulting citrine’s yellow.
