Today we are going to talk about a yellow gemstone called citrine. Citrine is a member of the quartz family. It is similar in color to Topaz, but actually has very little in common with the higher quality gemstone.

Citrine derived its name from the yellow color of the lemon, a citron fruit. The first recorded use of citrine as a color in English was in 1386. It was borrowed from a medieval and classical Latin word with the same meaning.
Folklore has it that Citrine contains the healing properties to help the heart, kidney, digestive tract, and liver.
Citrine promotes creativity, helps personal clarity and eliminates self-destructive tendencies.
