Citrine, a popular yellow gemstone that belongs to the quartz family, is possibly the most popular yellow gem. Its name comes from the citron fruit, which looks like a large lemon. Pure quartz is colorless, and the color of each form of quartz is determined by residues of various elements. Citrine's enticing sunny hues are due to the presence of iron.The colors of this appealing gemstone range from pale yellow to golden-orange to reddish-brown. The majority of citrine gems on the market today are actually other quartz kinds (amethyst, smoky quartz) that have been heat treated to get the ideal golden-yellow color. Citrine has been prized since ancient times for its ability to bring success and fortune to those who wear it. It is also known as the "success stone" because of these properties. Citrine is believed to promote abundance in all areas of life, particularly in business. As a result, it's commonly found in cash registers, thus the appellation "merchant's stone." The most important criterion in determining the value of a citrine is its color. This gem's natural color ranges from pale yellow to golden yellow, with hints of smoky brown.A citrine with a rich color and reddish tones is more valuable than a stone with lighter tones. Citrine with a reddish-orange color is sometimes referred to as 'Madeira' colored, after the famous wine. Because of their scarcity, even pale yellow citrines have become increasingly trendy in recent years. Citrine, a golden-yellow type of quartz, has a stunning lustre and sparkles vividly when sliced. It has a Mohs hardness score of 7 and is scratch resistant and hard enough to be used in jewelry. Citrine is a popular alternative to topaz and yellow sapphire since it is both radiant and cheap. Natural citrine is uncommon, and Brazil is the world's leading producer. Uruguay, Scotland, Madagascar, Spain, the United States, and Russia are also key sources.
