Citrine, although often mistakenly referred to as topaz, belongs to the quartz family. The yellow color of this gemstone is due to the presence of iron in the trigonal crystal structure. Named for its bright citrus color, citrine can present a range of yellow hues, from pale yellow to deep brownish gold. Though gemstone-quality stones are rare, Rio Grande offers the highest quality citrine available. According to folklore, citrine conveys the power of the sun.
