Citrine Meaning – General Information.

Citrine is a pale yellow to brown variety of Quartz which contains traces of iron. Natural Citrine is relatively rare, with most commercially available Citrine made from heat-treated Amethyst. Its name derives from the Latin citrina which means “yellow” and some say from the French name for lemon, “citron”. Citrine has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale and a trigonal crystal structure. It is best to keep it away from prolonged exposure to strong light or heat to prevent fading.

Sometimes Citrine is referred to as Topaz Quartz, which is incorrect. Topaz Quartz references the colour, which is sometimes similar to the colour of Topaz. But, Topaz is a separate gemstone, so this name is confusing and should not be in use. However, Citrine is an alternative to Topaz as the birthstone for November. Generally, the darker orange colours of Citrine, sometimes called Madeira Citrine after the colour of the wine, have been the most valued.


Citrine Meaning – History.

It was a recognised gem in Greece as far back as 300 BC. According to legend and myth, Citrine is the “Stone of Success”. Primarily because it increases intellect and broadens the mind by dispelling misconceptions. Because this is such a powerful stone, according to these legends it should only be given to generous people. In today’s modern era, Citrine is still very popular, especially among scholars, teachers and students, helping them to teach study and prepare for tests. Citrine is also referred to as a “stone of the mind”.

Some ancient cultures believed that placing a Citrine on the forehead of an elder would increase his psychic power. In earlier times, Citrine was a talisman, protecting against snake venom and evil thoughts.
