The name citrine is derived from the French word ‘citin’, which means lemon. Natural citrine is actually rare, so that most of the citrines on the jewellery market actually started out as smoky quartz or amethyst. To get different shade of yellow, these stones are heat treated. The heat treatment will give the desired shade from lemony yellow to reddish yellow. Citrine is popular for its own mystical and healing properties. It is believed that citrine can improve business so many merchants keep a citrine in the cash.
