Origin & Supply of Citrine

The name derives from the French 'citron', meaning 'lemon'. It's thought that the Romans were thought to be the first to wear citrine, but it became popular during the Romantic period as it enhanced the beauty of gold jewellery.

Optical Features

If left in the sun for a long period, citrine stones change colour. It’s a permanent colour change though, so if you like the colour of your stone, keep it away from long stints in the sun.
