About Citrine

Citrine is a member of the quartz family, making it a close relative to gemstones such as amethyst or rock crystal. What makes citrine stand out from other quartz varieties is its golden hues, which come from traces of iron. The name of the jewel comes from the Latin "citrina," meaning "yellow." Its color range also includes golden brown and orange-red hues.  Read More

Citrine Care 

While citrines are hard, they may be susceptible to damage from other quartz stones or harder jewels such as topaz or sapphire. When storing, make sure they're prevented from rubbing against other jewelry. This may mean placing them in individual compartments, boxes or storage pouches. If the citrines are part of a necklace or bracelet, wrapping them in cloth or tissue paper may help to keep the piece from scratching itself.  Read More
