Citrine owes its name to its own coloring. From the Latin “citrus” translates as lemon yellow. This mineral is very warm and sunny, there are crystals from pale-lemon to amber-honey hues.
The trimmed citrine looks noble and expensive, so people call it “golden crystal”. It is a stone of material prosperity and abundance, patronizing public figures engaged in the transfer of knowledge and networking.
