Citrine | Silver Street Jewellers


Posted by Laura Greenshields on



Citrine is a type of quartz that varies in colour from light yellow to brown owing to the existence of iron impurities.  Brazil is the top citrine producer, generating a the majority from the state of Rio Grande do Sul.




The name citrine derives from the Greek word meaning citron, since many of the oldest crystal findings had a hue identical to the citrus fruit. Citrine was used as jewelry in Greek and Roman cultures going back to the first century A.D. Citrine was used in a brooch made for theDuchess of Windsor, and in her Bulgari Cerchi earrings.
