Citrine as birthstone
Citrine is one of the most famous gemstones in the history of the quartz family. But what does the citrine symbolize? Mainly, the citrine became popular due to the lack of inexpensive gemstones made of gold. It is believed to have many positive qualities and abilities. Citrine comes in shades of yellow and orange, which symbolize the power of the sun. It brings out the light and warmth of the sun, which is very beneficial at the beginning of the cold season. Part of this is that the citrine can channel the power of the sun and all aspects associated with it. Thus, the citrine provides an uplifting mood, energy, strength and warmth.
The name citrine, originally referred to as yellow quartz, was officially adopted in 1556 when it was cited by a German metallurgist named Georg Bauer in a prestigious jewelry and gemstone publication. The name is most likely derived from the Latin term citrus (lemon tree) or the Old French term citrine (lemon-colored). In addition, citrine has been used in jewelry and tools for several centuries. Whether with gold or silver, the citrine illuminates any piece of jewelry. It became extremely popular in ancient Greece, where it was used extensively as a decorative jewel.
Citrine was also used by Scottish weapon makers in the 17th century, particularly to adorn dagger handles. Thereafter, citrine gained popularity in the manufacture of conventional Scottish shoulder brooches as well as kilt pins. The popularity of citrine at this time was largely due to Queen Victoria’s love of this gem. Necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings and brooches are made with the yellow gemstone citrine.
