From the International Colored Gemstone Association:
Citrine is the stone for the month of November and he name Citrine is derived from the colour – the yellow of the lemon – although the most sought-after stones have a clear, radiant yellowish to brownish red. The yellow stones have just that mellow, warm tone that seems to have captured the last glow of autumn. Like golden Rhine wine or sparkling Madeira, heavy and sweet, citrine jewellery shimmers and brings a hint of sunshine to those dull November days. There are not many yellow gemstones in the world of jewels. A diamond or a sapphire may be yellow – those will be expensive – or sometimes a tourmaline or chrysoberyl, though these tend toward green somewhat, a golden beryl or even a pure topaz. However, the citrine fulfils everyone’s colour wishes, from lemon yellow to reddish brown. Historically, it has been found in Spain, on the Scottish island of Arran, in France, and in Hungary.
Citrine is thought to generate positive energies such as confidence, optimism, and self discipline. And this notion has been supported by the people who have worn it for some time. So it has become a favourite amongst people who are inclined to become angry, depressed, and nervous. Citrine has been called the lucky “Merchants Stone” because it is supposed to help people who are involved in business and sales by increasing self esteem, helping them stay positive, and promoting clarity of thought.
Citrine is often measured in millimetres instead of in carats. A stone with a 6.5-millimetre diameter is equal to about a one-carat stone. So, the price of the stone will change depending on its size.
