Citrine, the November birthstone and thirteenth anniversary commemorator, appears in shades from pale yellow to brownish orange. Traces of iron within this quartz gem account for its yellowish orange color. The name citrine originates from the old French word “citrin,” which means “lemon.”

Although most quarts varieties adorned the ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks, citrine has not been directly discovered in the early ruins of these nations. Thus far, the earliest citrines discovered come from the Victorian era. The gems are found in extravagant settings and surely adorned the elite.

Throughout citrine’s history, the gem has been associated with hope, strength, cheerfulness, youth, health, and fidelity. It has been thought to bolster creativity. In our current day, some Chinese students believe citrine is able help them improve their performance on exams. Additionally, the stone is extensively used in Chinese gemstone healing sessions.
