    Citrine, a member of the Quartz mineral family, is a Quartz whose color is probably caused by Iron traces.
Citrine's name is derived from the French Citrine for lemon.  Color ranges from pale yellow, to medium yellow, to medium-dark orange-yellow, to root beer color.  Most Citrine on the market is actually a brownish variety of an Amethyst that has been heat treated to produce the bright yellow colors and darker stones with reddish tints.  The pale yellow color stones are typically natural untreated stones.  As the color ranges into medium-dark orange-yellow to Root Beer it is called Madeira Citrine.
    Citrine is heat sensitive, excessive heat could turn the stone colorless, an abrupt temperature change may fracture the stone. Chemicals that could attack this gem are hydrofluoric acids, ammonium fluoride, and alkalies.
    Sources for this gemstone are Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, India, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Uruguay, U.S., and Zambia.

TREATMENTS - Almost all Citrine on the market is routinely heat treated.
CARE - It is usually safe to clean Citrine jewelry in an UltraSonic Cleaner, but risky to use a steamer.  We recommend Ionic Cleaners and/or warm, soapy water and a soft brush as the best way to clean your Citrine jewelry.
