About Citrine Stone
Citrine stone is the yellow variety of Quartz, one of the most common minerals on Earth. It is a member of the Quartz Group that also includes Amethyst and Ametrine. It comes in a variety of colors, from pale yellow to deep orange. The color is due to traces of ferric iron added to the basic Silicon Dioxide formula.
The yellow or golden-yellow variety of crystalline quartz, Citrine Quartz has been called lemon quartz or cognac quartz, Brazilian topaz. citrine may be sold using this names-bit beware; if it is not clearly stated that the gemstone is a citrine, it may cause confusion or even mislead. It should be remembered that citrine and topaz are different minerals with different physical and chemical properties and therefore different values, with topaz generally the more expensive of the two.
Citrine stone is often found with amethyst, though amethyst is more common. Amethyst and smoky quartz can be heat treated to give citrine, which may be why it is sometimes called burnt amethyst. Citrine Gemstones may be called ametrine when both amethyst and citrine can be seen in the same gemstone.
