Citrine, a yellow quartz gem, adds a squeeze of lemony sparkle to any jewelry design. Often paired with amethyst, the purple quartz gem from the opposite side of the color wheel, citrine complements greens, pastels, reds, and earth tones too. Citrine is a warm golden color: Gemvara also offers lemon quartz, which has a lighter yellow hue with a squeeze of lime.

Gemvara's citrine has a bright sunny color that will add a warm glow to your wardrobe.

Citrine's affordability is due in part to the fact that throughout history, it's been confused with topaz, another golden-toned gemstone. Citrine even shares November birthstone status with topaz too. In addition to being the birthstone for November, citrine is the gem for the 13th anniversary.

This durable and brilliant gem is as easy to own as it is to wear. Clean with mild dish soap: use a toothbrush to scrub behind the stone where dust can collect.
