What is Citrine?
Natural Citrine is rare. Most Citrine gems on the market are heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz.
Gem-quality transparent specimens of Citrine with good color are very rare. The best examples of some such Citrine stones come from Brazil, Madagascar and the former USSR. The stone is also found in Scotland, France and Colorado.
Brazilian Amethyst turns yellow at 878° while Smoky Quartz changes color at a lower temperature (572° to 752°). These heat-treated stones have a slightly reddish tint.
Citrine’s name is derived from the Latin word “citrina” due to its pale-yellow citrus color (which is thanks to its iron content). In the earlier times, Citrine was called the "sun stone," and the it was thought to be useful for the protection of snakebites.
Its color was associated with gold; thus it became known as the merchant's stone. Citrine was believed to improve communication and to attract wealth. To the Romans, it was the stone of Mercury, the messenger God, and it was used for carving intaglios.
