Citrine

Citrine is the most popular yellow gemstone in the world and it is as equally revered for its strong spiritual powers as its good looks.

Citrine Colors

The name citrine comes from the old French and Latin terms for lemon and with its color ranging from light yellow to mustard it is easy to see why.

Yellow is considered an uplifting and optimistic color and this could explain why citrine has become such a much-loved gemstone in the world today.

Citrine Species

Citrine is a type of quartz, which is one of the most common minerals on earth, however only small amounts are beautiful enough to become gemstones. Other quartzes include Amethyst, Smoky Quartz and Rose Quartz.

What are the spiritual benefits of Citrine?

Citrine is known as the "Lucky Merchant's Stone" or the "Lightmaker", and has built up a real reputation as a powerful spiritual crystal.

Just some of its strengths include:

  • Happiness and Joy
  • Stability and Strength
  • Optimism and Generosity
  • Prosperity and Abundance

See our detailed article on citrine meaning and uses

Citrine and the Chakras

The Chakras are concentrated energy centers located around the body which can influence us emotionally and physically. Each Chakra has a designated color.

Citrine is a mostly yellow crystal although some can get quite orange too. This means they can affect two Chakra points - the Sacral and the Solar Plexus.

Citrine Price

The most important factor in determining the price of citrine is its color. Strong yellow to earthy-orange browns with a consistently even color throughout lead to the highest prices.

The most expensive citrine is the deep red-orange tones often referred to as Madeira or Fire Citrine although even then it is still a very reasonably priced gemstone.

Of course with color comes clarity, cut and carat size and they all add to the value of a citrine gemstone.

Carat Weight

Citrine is readily available in carat weights up to 20 carats and more so does not rapidly increase in price per carat as they get bigger.

Price is really all to do with the color - lighter citrine will be between $4 and $15 per carat for stones less than 10 carats in weight and could rise to a maximum of $25 per carat for some really big gems.

The premium, deeply colored gemstones can reach perhaps $40 per carat if the color is very intense and the size is significant.

Treatments

Citrine treatments are a bit of a minefield. Humans have been heating poorly colored amethyst and smoky quartz to create citrine for so long that it has become an accepted practice.

At the same time totally natural citrine also exists and it is very difficult to tell the difference.

Any treatments our citrines receive are clearly and fully disclosed on our product pages.

Citrine History

Once upon a time all yellow gemstones were known as topaz but this could have easily included peridot, beryl and citrine.

As scientists got more sophisticated they were able to tell the difference and Citrine was identified as a type of quartz and given its present name by Georg Bauer in 1556.

Items made of citrine have been dated back to 300BC in ancient Greece and it was very popular to decorate daggers and swords in 17th century Scotland with citrine gemstones.

Where is Citrine found?

Citrine is found in Brazil, Bolivia and Uruguay in South America as well as Madagascar, Russia and the US.

What jewelry is Citrine suitable for?

Citrine is rated at 7 on Mohs hardness scale, like all quartzes, which makes it durable enough for all jewelry items including daily wear pieces.

Citrine is a readily available gemstone that can often be found in large carat sizes. This has meant cutters and designers have felt free to experiment with interesting shapes and cuts.

These big sizes and curious shapes can be used in exciting eye-catching jewelry items.

Birthstones and Anniversaries

Citrine is the official birthstone for November so can make a great gift for someone who has a birthday in that month.

Citrine is the traditional gemstone to celebrate the 13th wedding anniversary.

this is my first experience with GemSelect so I can’t really comment on much more than the website & purchasing experience, which was great. there were a few stones I went to look at that didn’t really have descriptions about them (their properties or spiritual benefits for example) like some of the other stones & I thought that was interesting & I wondered why they didn’t. but all in all, the purchasing experience was easeful & I can’t wait to receive my gems & see if the quality is as beautyfull as they seem to be in the pictures.
