Citrine is the name of a colour, the beautiful yellow inspired by yellow citrus. Citrine gemstones can vary in colour from yellow, greenish-yellow, brownish yellow to orange. We try to source Citrine gems that are golden yellow and have that inner glow.

The name ‘Citrine’ can be traced back to the 16th century and is thought that the most likely source is the French word “citron” meaning lemon.

Citrine gemstones have been used in jewellery for thousands of years. In the 17th century Scottish men used citrines on the handles of their daggers and swords. Yellow quartz or citrine gemstones can be found in the mountainous regions of Scotland and these stones are know as Cairngorms.

Quartz crystals were thought to be a talisman, and many Highland clans owned stones, which were believed to have magical or healing properties.

Some people believe the Citrine radiates positive energy and brings success to the wearer.
