Quartz - Citrine
Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java Quartz - Citrine
Citrine is a yellow variety of quartz which can be artificially made by cooking purple or black quartz. These cooked quartzes are hard to distinguish from the natural Citrine quartz and are sometimes passed off as the much more rare and expensive yellow-orange Topaz. Naturally occurring Citrine seems to have been originally amethyst that has been cooked by nearby hot melted rocks. As a result, this produces a grading from purple into Orange, both naturally and artificially.
