About: Natural citrine is rare when found in nature. It is a type of crystalline quartz that may have started as amethyst. You may ask why would you turn amethyst to citrine? Well, like all things we like to have variety. So we take amethyst and heat treat it to change amethyst to citrine. It is still a natural mineral, just that we have speeded up the process by a few million of years of climactic forces on the mineral.
Care: Since citrine is essentially quartz it is a hard mineral and makes wonderful faceted jewelry. Clean your citrine jewelry with warm water, mild detergent and soft brush.
Source: Brazil is the leading producers of citrine but can be found in other areas of the world like Bolivia; Democratic Republic of the Congo; Madagascar; Mexico; Myanmar; Namibia; Peru; Russia; South Africa; United States; Zambia.
