Citrine – Crystal Healing

This crystal’s name derives from “citron”, the French word for lemon.

Colour and description

Palest yellow to deep amber; its iron content is responsible for its colour. Citrine is a variety of transparent quartz. It is sometimes confused with topaz, hence the other names it is known by. It can permanently change colour if left in the sunlight or near heat sources, so be sure to keep it in a dark place when not using it. It also scratches easily, so take care when wearing citrine; do not bump it against anything hard. It is possible to get a stone that is both amethyst and citrine combined, called ametrine.
