Citrine is the stunning transparent, pale yellow to red-orange, to orange-yellow, to brownish orange variety of crystalline quartz. Many believed it was a gift from the sun which gives us a warm color to brighten up our mood. Though it’s not rare, most women value its impressive earth-toned color appearance which makes it more precious and brilliant. Its color changes from time to time depending on how you expose it. Citrine has positive characteristics when aiding the physical self and has an important role in valuing the spiritual self as well. It awakens and expands the higher mind, especially conscious awareness.
Citrine came from the Latin word “citrina” because of its clarity and pale citrus color. It is said to be a “Sun Stone” which keeps the sunlight and gains energy from it. For French word, it came from the word “citron” which means lemon. That identifies its autumn hues from light yellow to bright orange. Citrine was said to be used from the Old Testament which was part of Aaron’s breastplate. From the Hellenistic Age (300 and 150 BC), greek was amazed by the citrine’s vibrant color which eventually became a prized possession and began its way to fashion jewelry.
Citrine is also known as The Merchant’s Stone. It gives good luck to business and trades. No questions asked because it carries prosperity, wealth, and success.
It was lined with other precious and expensive quartz in the Victorian Era, where Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom used to love this crystal. After introducing citrine in part of Europe, it became trendy jewelry, in clothing, furniture, and invaded the interior design world. It was also presented during the Art Deco era (between World War I and World War II).

Today, citrine is primarily used for decorating, fashion, interior, and a lot of it for designer jewelry pieces.
