What does citrine look like?
Citrine is a transparent and even translucent member of the crystalline quartz family. This crystal can be found in pale tan, yellow, bright orange, and deep reddish-brown colors. Although we will get into the colors a bit more and what they mean in terms of natural vs. heat treated Citrine.
You can easily identify Citrine by its glass-like feel, smooth edges, and hardness, especially the ones from Brazil. You can also easily identify Citrine from other similar stones by its even coloring. Most Citrine crystals have a fairly even color hue throughout the stone.They are almost always a polished or carved point or piece when they come from Brazil.These citrine crystals will generally also be a tan coloring for the most part with some hues of yellow from iron or may sometimes also be ‘smoky’ and a darker brown coloring.
Natural Citrine also forms in clusters in SOME locations like DR Congo.These citrine clusters are often referred to as Kundalini Quartz and have a grown pattern like ‘candle quartz’.They often have one larger point and several tiny ones around the sides of it. It is VERY rare to have citrine grow in natural cluster formations…. Which brings us to…
Although quartz is one of the most common stones on earth, the citrine variation is quite rare in comparison. Because of their rarity, these gems are often faked through heat treatment. Exposing amethyst crystals to high heat levels can bring out yellowish or orange tones (sometimes brown) and then is passed off as Citrine. Example of the heat treated one is shown on these bracelets. Heat-treated stones will have bits of opaque white, usually at the base (or ‘tooth); this is a tell-tale sign that it is an amethyst.You will want to keep an eye out for these as many sellers still call it ‘Natural Citrine’ since it is not a synthetic crystal. I will always point out if I have it, but it is rare I bring in heat-treated citrine.
Where does citrine come from?
There are deposits of citrine in Brazil, DR Congo, Morocco, Madagascar, Uruguay, Spain and Scotland, just to name a few.A HUGE percentage comes fromBrazil.Natural citrine is still rare to find, hence amethyst and smoky quartz are sometimes heated to obtain a golden yellow color to desire.I will ALWAYS note if something in my shop is heat-treated. You can distinguish a natural from a fake by the evenness of color all around the stone. Fake citrine has a bright yellow to orange/reddish tint to it and you can usually tell it was once formerly amethyst.
