An Introduction To Citrine Gemstone

Citrine is one of the most famous Gemstones in the market. Tourmaline, Citrine, Yellow Sapphire, and Yellow Topaz are the only options for yellow-colored gemstones. In all of these, no other stones can beat our Citrine Gemstone in price, quality, and color. It belongs to the Quartz family and other members are  Amethyst, Smoky, Rose, Crystal, Lemon, Beer, and Rutile.  It comes in yellow (light and good) and golden-orange color. The name ‘Citrine is derived from ‘citron’ which is a French word and stands for ‘lemon’.

How Are All the Quartz Stones Better Than Topaz Gems? 

So what is it that constitutes the difference between the real Topaz and Citrine? A fluorine aluminum silicate differentiates Citrine from Natural Topaz. It comparatively weighs 25-30% lower than Topaz and when we talk about the price point of view then it is lower than Topaz.  Another reason is the wide color range of Quartz Stones – Smoky, Rose, Rutile, Citrine, Amethyst, etc.

Most of the Citrine Gems are a result of heat-treated Amethyst and that is acceptable in the market. 100% Natural Citrines in good color (golden-orange) are rarely available. Now when we talk about the chemical properties of Amethyst and Citrine then it’s quite similar, with the only difference of iron ions’ oxidation level (Fe3).

Citrine Gemstone usually is the Semi Precious Gemstone that is used most after Blue Topaz, and because of its vibrant Citrine Yellow color. Moreover, Citrine usually comes in three shades, Light Medium and Dark.

Citrine is a type of Quartz, and the past few years for Citrine has not been too good in the market. In fact, the yellow color of any gemstone has not been doing too well. Yellow Sapphire, Yellow Quartz, Yellow Beryl, or even the Yellow Citrine, all are off late and not in trend, but the trend for Citrine is coming back with the introduction of the new “Mandarin Citrine” which is really dark and available at our stores too.

Citrine Gemstone Color, Treatment, Sizes, Shapes, and Qualities

As written above, it comes in light yellow, vivid yellow, golden-orange, and gold-brown colors and the most demanding and high-priced colors are golden with an orange tint. Most of the Natural Citrine Gemstone comes in pale yellow to medium yellow and all deep colors of golden orange to golden brown are heated (shows a reddish tint). Most of the Citrine Gemstones come in clean quality without any of the inclusions. The only quality factor is color, so the more price you pay, the better color you will get.

Round, Ovals, and cushion shapes are most famous in normal cut, cabochon cut and diamond cut Citrine Gemstone, however, we cut all other shapes and cuttings as well. We have good quantities in our stock and also make on order within 1 week. Calibrated sizes like 2mm, 3mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 15mm rounds, 6×4, 8×6, 10×8 oval, pear, and octagon are more in demand rather than free big size stones.  Natural Unheated Citrine Gemstone is becoming increasingly rare. Many of the Citrine Gemstones available today are heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz. Treated Citrine is often heated right at the mining source. The color change is considered to be both permanent and stable.

When we talk about color grading then it follows the same criteria as Amethyst. The top yellow color which is not easily available is called Madeira Citrine and Golden Citrine, which is used regularly in the market. Commercial Quality Citrine comes with a color banding of a very pale color without equal saturation of yellow color.

Citrine Cabochons

Mostly Citrine Gemstone cabs come in light to medium color when you compare to Citrine Cut Gems. Price and demand are factors behind this because most of the cabs used in silver jewelry and the silver jewelry manufacturer’s target price are always low.
