From the French "citron", lemon, citrine is a yellow gem of the quartz family. The agent that gives it color is iron. In the Middle Ages it was considered a talisman against skin problems; today it is a stepping stone to success and prosperity. Natural citrines are rare and most are heat-treated amethysts, in Roosik, however, all gemstones are of natural origin.
