Citrine is a type of quartz that ranges in color from pale yellow to golden brown. Its name comes from the French word for lemon, Citron.
Citrine is known as the “Success Stone” because it is believed to promote success, prosperity and abundance. It is also thought to boost creativity and self-confidence. Citrine is found in many parts of the world, including Brazil, Madagascar and Russia. Most of the Citrine on the market today is actually heat-treated Amethyst, which turns yellow when heated.
Citrine is the birthstone for November and the Zodiac stone for Gemini. It is also the planetary stone for Jupiter and the element stone for Air. Citrine vibrates to the number 9.
