The gemstone Citrine is named after the French word "citron", meaning lemon. The color of citrine ranges from straw and sun yellow, to clay orange, to deep wine colored Madeira red, and like all crystal quartz it has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale which makes it insensitive to scratches. It is the official birthstone for the month of November as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912, and it is also considered the Planetary stone for the Sun Sign of Virgo.
Citrine is considered to bring happiness, joy and optimism, and it is one of only two minerals on the planet which do not hold or accumulate negative energy, but dispels and transforms it. Citrine energizes and invigorates, promotes warmth, comfort, and energy.
