The name Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. Citrine was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C. and was worked into cabochon ring stones and intaglios in Greece and Rome through the first and second centuries A.D. Much of the commercial Citrine on the market is heat-treated Amethyst. In general, the deeper amber and orangish shades are heat treated. Natural Citrines are mostly a pale yellow color. Deposits of natural Citrine have been found in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and the USA.
