Associative Properties Of Citrine
Citrine is connected with Sekhmet, the Egyptian goddess of war, because of its association with power. It is a symbol of strength, hope, prosperity, and cheerfulness. It is also a traditional gift for the 13th and 17th wedding anniversaries where a gift of my Citrine Teardrop Pendant Necklace would be a big hit.
Citrine Family, Color & Value
Citrine is a transparent variety of Quartz that comes in varying shades of yellow. Its name comes from the French word "citron," which means “lemon," denoting the importance of its color. Some Citrine on the market today is actually created by heat-treating Amethyst or Smoky Quartz, so if having genuine Citrine is important to you - be sure to confirm this beforehand if it is not made 100% clear in a product description. I only use genuine earth-mined, ethically sourced, non-treated stones in all of my work such as this beautiful genuine Citrine Vertical Bar Necklace.
