Citrine is a transparent yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in colour from pale to golden yellow. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 BC and is the birthstone for November.
Citrine is said to be a happy stone, bringing happiness to the person who carries or wears it. Because of its removal of negative energy and its own positivity, it can relieve depression, self-doubt, anger and irrational mood swings.
