Citrine occurs naturally in a wide variety of yellow colors, all of which are caused by varying quantities of iron atoms in the Citrine crystal structure. We often see very pale or almost colorless Citrine. With higher quantities of iron, we see orange, wine-yellow, honey-yellow, and saffron (reddish)-yellow specimens, while others have quite a pronounced brown tinge.
Robert Michael purchased several deep orange Citrine crystals from a mining resource in Brazil. He cut one crystal in half, then faceted these two matching 7x7mm heart-shaped gemstones weighing 1.5 carats each. Robert then set the gems in Sterling Silver Post Earrings.
Citrine is a November Birthstone.
