Citrine is the purple Amethyst's yellow cousin or maybe it should be called its sister since they are so closely related. The only difference between these two members of the quartz family is the rate of oxidisation of their iron impurities.

Citrine is quartz. Quartz is the second most common mineral in the earth's crust. It is made up of silicon and oxygen formed within all types of rocks. Common quartzes include amethyst, blue quartz, cactus quartz, chalcedony, rose quartz and smoky quartz. Liquids cool within cracks of rocks and begin to form crystals and when certain minerals are trapped together they can form coloured crystals.

Citrine is the birthstone for November. It provides calming qualities while encouraging wealth and warmth. Citrine is also the Zodiac stone for Libra and the gemstone to celebrate the 13th wedding anniversary. Citrine jewellery will radiate positive energy and bring calmness, prosperity and warmth. So, if you or your loved one were born in November or under the sign of Libra this stone would make an ideal gift.
