"Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows."
~Helen Keller

Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from pale yellow to brown depending on the iron content. It takes its name from its color, a gorgeous yellow, that’s reminiscent of the citron fruit.

Natural citrines are rare. In fact, most commercial citrines are heat-treated amethysts or smoky quartzes. One of the ways you can tell a heat-treated amethyst is that it will have small lines in the crystal, whereas a true citrine is cloudy or smoky in appearance. The leading producer of citrine is Brazil and more particularly, the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
