Citrine is most commonly seen in the yellow to orange color range. It’s name was derived from the Latin word ‘citrus’ meaning “citron” (a fruit closely related to the lemon). Citrine is commonly found in Bolivia, Brazil, and Spain. With a warm attractive color, Citrine brings some heat to a chilly November. It is also considered the nineteenth anniversary gemstone.
