Citrine GemstonesRarer than its purple cousin amethyst, citrine symbolizes peace and serenity. This top selling yellow-to-orange gemstone is a gorgeous, earthy alternative for topaz and yellow sapphire. Citrine, said to be a gift from the sun, ranges in color from lemon yellow to bright orangey brown. It is also said to be the “healing quartz” for its ability to comfort, soothe and calm. Citrine is one of the most popular and affordable gemstones, making it a great choice for big, bold, statement pieces. Citrine can also be cut into many different shapes and sizes. If your style boasts uniqueness and intricacy, citrine is the perfect gemstone for you. It is also a durable gemstone, ranking 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. From bold necklaces to striking rings, citrine is ideal for every day wear. Citrine’s attractive color, durability, and affordability make it the top-selling yellow-to-orange gemstone.
Natural citrine is actually quite rare. Because of this, most of the citrine on the market is the result of heat treatment. Amethyst with a typically undesirable pale violet color is heat treated to change the color to an attractive yellow. The original hue of the amethyst can determine the richness of the resulting citrine’s color. Almost all treated citrine will exhibit reddish hints, creating a lovely golden color. Citrine’s optimistic colors bring to mind the warmth of mid-day sunshine. The golden hues of this gorgeous gemstone perfectly complement all skin tones. Citrine is beautiful as a solitaire stone; however, the warm colors make citrine an alluring accent to diamonds and other colored gemstones.
Like topaz, citrine is also the November birthstone. Citrine makes the perfect gift for the November babies in your life, but it’s also a gemstone anyone can enjoy. The warm, sunshine tones, the positive attributes, and the reasonable pricing make citrine gemstones an excellent addition to any collection.
