Citrine The Sunshine Gemstone
That is not an official name for Citrine. It is just what I think of when I see Citrine. Citrine has a hardness of 7, on the Mohs Hardness Scale, and is somewhat brittle internally. Due to this care needs to be taken, when setting, or wearing Citrine. Most Citrine, on the market is heat treated, to enhance the color, and usually has a slight red tint to it. Natural Citrine, is a very soft lovely yellow color. Citrine, can range from a soft yellow, to a deep golden yellow color. Each of these rings below, were made by me, and are available for sale, in my Etsy store, missy69. Citrine is the birthstone of November.
