The name citrine comes from the French citron, or "lemon," for its color. It is found in Brazil, Madagascar, Spain, Uruguay, Scotland, Russia and the US (California, Colorado, North Carolina, Georgia, and Nevada). Brazil is the main source of citrine. Citrine is the yellow form of quartz and colors range from a pale lemon yellow to darker, orangeier yellows. It has been used in Greece since the end of the 4th to end of the 1st century BC. In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts, but it didn't see substantial use as a gemstone in jewelry until the Romantic Period (1837-1860).
