Citrine is the transparent, pale yellow to brownish orange variety of quartz. It is said that its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form.
Why we love this gemstone
Even fine citrine has a modest price tag. Large gems remain affordable, as price per carat does not rise dramatically for larger sizes.
Giant hollow crystal-lined amethyst geodes from areas like Brazil are often heated to become giant citrine “cathedrals.”
In Bolivia, amethyst and citrine colors can occur together in the same crystal. These unique gems are called ametrine.
