Citrine is recognized as one of the most popular & frequently purchased yellow gemstone, although it is a quartz stone, it is easily confused with a topaz, but considered a semi-precious stone. Citrine is the Birthstone for November.
Citrine is available in all standard shapes and sizes, but many high-end designers and gem carvers have fashioned the beautiful yellow gem into unusual cuts for jewelry and carvings as you will see in our citrine collection.
