More information about Citrine Crystals:
- Citrine in its pure form is very rare. Most of the Citrine on the market is heated Amethyst, or Smoky Quartz. The heat treatment causes those to become a burnt yellowish orange, often mistakenly called citrine. Some amethyst deposits where exposed to high temperatures are naturally occurring brown citrine.
- Citrine is often mistaken for Gold or Yellow Topaz.
- Citrine crystals can form together with amethyst or smoky quartz to form a bi-colored quartz called Ametrine.
