CITRINE is a transparent to translucent quartz that ranges in color from pastel (pale) lemon yellow to a deeper or golden yellow, to amber and a deep reddish brown. The name "Citrine" is derived from the yellow lemon or citron-like color. The International Gemstone Color Association describes this beautiful stone to be “Like golden Rhine wine or sparkling Madeira, heavy and sweet, citrine jewellery shimmers and brings a hint of sunshine to those dull November days.” While the deeper toned Citrines are often called gold topaz, or Madeira or Spanish topaz, except for the nuances of color, Citrine actually has very little in common with genuine Topaz - which is not quartz, but a higher-quality (and more expensive) clear gemstone.Very pale yellow Citrines are rare; and most commercially available Citrines are actually Amethysts, which are also crystalline quartz, that have been heat-treated. (Heat-treated gemstones are still considered "natural," as no additional color or other substances have been added.)
The beautiful color of this Citrine necklace looks even more radiant in the sunlight. Three strands of multi-shaped stones are interspersed with sterling silver accent beads. Each strand has one large focal Citrine measuring one inch, 7/8, and 5/8 inches. Two strands are either diamond or rectangular-shaped Citrines measuring 0.25 inches. The third strand is crafted of wavy Citrines measuring 5/8 x 3/8 and 4/8 inches. The Necklace measures 20 inches. Suggested retail price is $500.
