Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from very pale yellow to a deep golden yellow, a brown or dark orange. It gets its’ color from colloidal iron hydrate. It is rarely found naturally; most citrine is heat treated amethyst or smoky quartz. The darker colors are the most preferred.
Citrine can be in the form of druzy quartz or clusters of crystals. It is frequently cut into beautiful gemstones for use in jewelry. Natural citrine deposits have been found in Brazil, Spain, Africa, Russia, France, and the USA.
Citrine is the November birthstone.
Citrine is thought to open inner doors to enhanced creativity, clarity of thought and personal will. It is a premier stone for the second chakra, thought to be capable of awakening the powers of creative imagination. The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It has been used as far back as 300 B. C. by the Greeks. It works well by itself or in combination with other healing stones.
