Formation

Citrine is a type of quartz mineral with a crystal structure forming in a pattern with six sides. Small particles of iron trap in the quartz mineral causing the orange hues found in the stone.

Cleaning & Care

Citrine can be easily cleaned at home using warm soapy water and a soft brush. An ultrasonic cleaner may also be used. A steam cleaner is not recommended to clean citrine. Avoid wearing citrine in situations where it may be scratched or hit. Citrine should be kept from prolonged exposure to sunlight or heat to avoid fading. Gemstone Cleaning and Care Guide >
