Comments : This is one incredible gem, an outstandingly beautiful golden honey citrine from Brazil. The colours are rich, sultry and sunny all at the same time. You can see the original rough stone here. It is an amazing citrine, eye clean and cut in one of my favorite oval designs, the Ten Main Oval. This design is perfect for citrine and has alot of crisp sharp facets that really bring brilliance and performance to the stone. It would make one awesome cocktail ring for sure! This is a highly recommended gemstone.

Citrine, Concave Iris Cut, Brazil, #c30
Zoom

Stone : Citrine
Item : #c30
Design : Concave Iris
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : None
Weight : 4.7 carats each, Matched Pair
Clarity : Very Slightly Included / Eye Clean
Size : 11 x 11 x 8 mm
Price : 150 each

Comments : A very nicely matched pair of citrines. In the pics, the gems look a little darker then they are in real life. The concave design creates an iris like effect. There is no table with this design, instead it comes to a point, like a crown culet or the pavilion. I think this design is particularly effective for earrings.

Item : #c29
Design : Concave Octagon Star
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : None
Weight : 8.8 carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 14 x 14 x 9 mm
Price : 290

Comments : A very nicely cut citrine in a fancy octagon design. The concave cut really creates a stunning effect in this particular design, with the sunburst rays filling the gem. This would make a very sunny setting and is open to a creative and imaginative setting design. In the pics, the gem is a little darker then it really is. A top gem.

Citrine, Three Wise Men (Variation), #15

Stone : Citrine
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2008
Item : #15
Design : Three Wise Men (Variation) (Jeff Graham)
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : Natural
Weight : carats
Clarity : Eye Clean, 5/5
Size :
Price : NOT FOR SALE

Comments : This unusually cut gemstone came about because I couldn't bring myself to grind away all that beautiful crystal I was cutting. When it came time to cut the crown there happened to be alot of nice clear stone remaining and I found myself relucant to cut it away. It was lovely clean, clear, golden citrine and the gemstone was telling me it wanted to be different to the design I was cutting. So what I did in keeping with the "5" sided nature of the design was to lengthen the girdle so that the rectangle facet was in the "phi" ratio, in this case 8mm X 5mm and thus managed to preserve the glorious crystal. This gem is one of my favourites and isn't for sale, only show. It has a significance for me in that it represented the first time that a stone really felt like it wanted to express itself and I had to make a conscious choice to let it be what it wanted to be or enforce what I wanted it to be. I'm happy to say that in the end the gemstone won.

Comments : The name citrine is derived from its lemon-yellow colour. It is a beautiful stone and actually quite a rare member of the quartz family. You wouldn't think so from the amount of citrine that is available in the marketplace. Alot of the commercial citrine is actually amethyst or smokey quartz that has been heated to the required temperatures in order to bring about a change in the colour. True natural citrine tends to be light in colour though dark, well saturated stone can be found. Almost all heat treated citrines will have some degree of red or dark orange tint about them which can be quite rich and alluring in its own right. Light citrine can also be heated to improve the colour.

Citrine comes in a range of colour tones and associated trade names. The darkest, richest and most expensive is Madeira citrine which also used to be called "ox-blood" citrine once upon a time. There is Rio-Grande citrine, golden citrine, and others. You can see a
colour chart for citrine on this page. Citrine is a very popular jewelry stone and can be cut in virtually any design. Citrine is readily available in nice clean large sizes.
