Citrine’s name is derived from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It is a yellow/brown variety of quartz, with impurities of colloidal iron giving its color. Natural Citrine is rare & is a smoky dark yellow to light yellow. Most Citrine in cluster form on the market today is heat treated Amethyst. When heated to temperatures above 500ºC, most Amethyst will turn a dark orange/red/brown color, and is then sold as citrine.
