Citrine is a form of quartz, and many citrine gemstone beads on the market today are actually heat-treated amethyst - possibly including ours. Both citrine and topaz are popular gemstones for November birthstone jewelry. Citrine, with its warm sunny yellow, symbolizes joy and abundance, and is associated with the sacral chakra (creativity and manifestation). Like all colored forms of quartz, citrine components should be stored away from prolonged exposure to strong light or heat. With these precautions, citrine jewelry will last for many generations!
