Citrine is a yellow variety of quartz. Often used as an alternate birthstone to topaz for the month of November, shades can vary from a pale yellow to vivid red-orange (referred to as "Madeira citrine"). Some stones can contain varying amounts of purple amethyst, even going as far as creating a vivid natural split of yellow and purple; this is called "ametrine." Natural citrine can be found in Russia and Madagascar, though purple amethyst from Brazil is commonly heat treated to create citrine. This is a widely accepted practice in the gem trade, and it is indistinguishable from non-treated material without an independent lab report.
Because citrine is quartz, material is durable and ranks 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Citrine makes great rings and is easy to clean with soap and water at home. Chemical jewelry cleaners are safe to use on citrine jewelry.
