Citrine Crystal Specimens for SaleCitrine

 
Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils Citrine is a form of Quartz (SiO2) that includes tiny traces of iron oxide.  The name Citrine is from the Latin word citrina, meaning yellow.  Citrine ranges in color from yellow to orange to brown.  Natural Citrine is very rare; most Citrine sold on the market is actually heat-treated Amethyst.  The crystals commonly grow inside vugs, which are irregularly shaped hollow cavities within volcanic or sedimentary rocks.  (The term geode usually refers to more rounded or spheroidal-shaped vugs.)

Vugs and geodes can be formed by gas bubbles, the dissolution of sedimentary nodules, or fissures created by faulting and folding.  As mineral-laden water seeps through the hollow voids, minerals may precipitate out to form a crystal lining called druze (also spelled druse, drusy, or druzy).

The Citrine specimens below, from Brazil and Uruguay, are pieces of druze that crystallized inside vugs or geodes.
