Citrine is a quartz crystal gemstone, ranging from palest golden yellow to deep orange or brown. The name is derived from the Latin, citrina, meaning "yellow". The ones of richer, deeper color are sometimes called Madeira citrine, and the ones tending more toward brown are often referred to as beer quartz or whiskey quartz, depending on whether the individual gem tends more toward yellow or orangy brown. The paler ones are called champagne quartz or champagne citrine. Almost all citrine is heated to bring out the marvellous colors.
Citrine is traditionally associated with attracting profit.
