General Information on Citrine

Citrine is a yellow quartz, with a hardness of 7. The yellow colour is due to the presence of iron (iron oxide). Natural citrine is pale yellow in colour but it is very rare. The most common citrine is heat treated amethyst, but it can also be made from smokey quartz. Citrine is easily confused with aged amethyst.

Similarly to smokey quartz, citrine is often marketed with names that include topaz in order to increase its price.

Citrine mainly occurs in the same areas as amethyst as it can occur as ametrine. Gem quality citrine is found in Russia, India, France, Brazil, Spain and in North Carolina.

Citrine is sometimes called the stone of the mind in that it is said to help in that department! It is also claimed to aid your finances.

Citrine can make an interesting choice for your engagement ring - we tend to use it as side or accent stones.
