This radiant, lemony yellow gemstone gets its name from the Old French citrin, meaning yellow. Citrine, a member of the quartz family, is known as a tough gemstone, one that has good durability. Thus, it is an excellent choice for everyday jewelry.

According to legend and lore, if you are feeling emotionally out of balance, citrine is the perfect antidote. It gives its wearer a happy and cheerful disposition, and a neutral attitude when it is needed. Citrine has a good reputation as a physical balancer, too, and it is responsible for keeping organs like the heart, gallbladder, and kidneys in good shape.
