Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities. Natural citrines are rare; most commercial citrines are heat-treated amethysts or smoky quartzes. It is nearly impossible to differentiate between cut citrine and yellow topaz visually, but they differ in hardness. Brazil is the leading producer of citrine, with much of its production coming from the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The name is derived from the Latin word citrina which means "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron". Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine. Citrine was first appreciated as a golden-yellow gemstone in Greece between 300 and 150 BC, during the Hellenistic Age.
Citrine has a warm, extra-bright energy. Natural citrine is known to have a much cleaner vibration compared to the heat-treated kind. Citrine cleanses and energizes the user. It makes a great tool for transmuting negative energy because it is highly protective. Citrine heightens self-discipline and willpower; thereby, attracting professional success and wealth. It has been called "the merchant's stone" and can be placed in a cash box or drawer or it can be placed in the far-left corner of the home in order to attract abundance.
