Citrine Gemstone Information
Citrine is a gemstone. It’s a clear, yellow variety of Quartz. Its color shade varies from a golden yellow to honey or almost brownish shine. Citrine qualifies as one of the many valuable gems in the entire world. Citrine is used to make various kinds of jewelry like Citrine necklaces, and Citrine earrings.
This gemstone varies from transparent to translucent meaning it can be found crystal clear or slightly hazy. In its natural state Citrine is very cloudy or hazy. Citrine is a very affordable gemstone. It is usually found in Brazil, but you can still find Citrine in other areas. Due to its similarity to Topaz it is sometimes used to con people by selling them Citrine instead of Topaz.
Citrine Name & History
It was named after the French word “citron” which means a similar fruit to lemon, which is basically what Citrine looks like. Citrine was very firstly recognized in Greece in between early 300 to 150 BC. The yellow gemstone was first used in making of some tools or in decoration of jewelry by putting it in pendants.
Yellow Citrine Color
Citrine owes its alluring color to the iron impurities inside it. It’s the presence of iron impurities that makes the color pop in the yellow gemstone. Citrine comes second in the most popular Quartz gemstones. The most important gemstone is Amethyst. Citrine is usually produced from Amethysts or Smoky Quartz.
Durability of Citrine
Citrine is a very tough gemstone. It has the hardness of 7 Mohs on the hardness scale. It’s really brittle and hard to break. But it can be broken by harsh hits. Citrine, like any other Quartz gemstone, should be kept away from direct sunlight. The direct contact from sunlight fades the color of Citrine.
Citrine made by heat treated Amethyst is mostly found in the markets. Citrine can possibly be made by heat treating certain Smoky Quartz from different vicinities. Though Smoky Quartz can make Citrine, the quality of that Citrine will not be very good. Rather, the quality would be sub-par, and you definitely wouldn’t want to invest in a jewelry item with this material afterward. Often, Citrine is produced by heat-treating Amethyst, a purple Quartz gemstone. However, a heat-treated Amethyst that is turned into Citrine will have lines on its surface rather than having its cloudy or hazy formation.
Citrine is found in very large pieces in rugged/non-polished form. Natural Citrine is very rare to found. The majority of Citrine comes from Brazil. Almost all of the citrine production in Brazil is in its state Rio Grande do Sul. Natural Citrine can also be found in countries like Russia, Madagascar, France and also Dauphine. You should definitely consider investing in Citrine Jewelry, for it is both affordable, and looks very attractive. The chemical formula of Citrine is SiO2. In simple words, it is Silicon Dioxide. Most of the times, it’s found in Amethyst deposits and in this case the Amethysts are naturally converted halfway or fully into Citrine by the natural heat around it.
