Citrine Buying Guide - What factors to look out for when browsing

Buy Citrine Gems

Color may be the major factor when buying citrine gemstones but there are a number of other things to bear in mind. Size, clarity, durability, and more all play their part in getting the best value for money when shopping for this golden yellow gem.

Brief Buying Guide to Citrine

Color

While Citrine is thought of as a yellow gemstone, the colors can range from a light lemony hue all the way to an almost earthy brown shade. We all have our own preferences when it comes to color but with Citrine the most valuable version is deep reddish orange. Always look for saturated colors with an even tone across the stone.

Clarity

As a general rule with all colored gemstones, the clearer the better. Any internal blemishes or inclusions will devalue a gemstone considerably. Citrine is a fairly plentiful quartz so there is no need to compromise on clarity - only buy eye-clean gemstones - no visible cracks or blemishes.

Carat

Citrine is a type of quartz and as such can often be found in enormous sizes. As far as gemstones go, citrine is readily available in nice big carat sizes suitable for chunky cocktail rings or impressive eye-catching pendants. Even stones of 10 or 20 carats and more are to be found at very reasonable prices.

Jewelry

Citrine is a jewelry maker's dream gemstone. Bold, bright colors, excellent clarity, big sizes and excellent value for money. Its high durability rating means it can be used in all jewelry styles and their relatively low price means matching jewelry sets are within everyone's reach. Perhaps large cocktail rings and striking pendants are the most ideal.

Treatments

Some citrine is the result of heating poorly colored amethyst or smoky quartz and it can be very difficult to tell the difference between it and all-natural citrine. This heating is often done at the mining site before being sold and cut so even the most scrupulous dealers can be caught out! Generally, lighter gemstones with a yellow to orange color are more likely to be natural while stones with a reddish tint could be treated but this is not a hard and fast rule. We highly recommend buying citrine from a reputable seller.

Price

Citrine is a beautiful gemstone with a long and esteemed history and a great reputation for its spiritual powers yet despite all this gemstones with dazzling colors, big sizes and amazing clarity can be found to fit all budgets.
