Comments : When I took this citrine off the dopstick and cleaned it up, my very first thought was, my goodness! This looks just like a really good golden sapphire! I could get over it... the colour is so much better then the pics and the colour of the rough had me thinking it was going to turn out a different hue... but once I had it in the hand I knew this was something special. This is the colour of top top citrine! A very beautiful and fine citrine.

Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 15 x 15 x 6.5 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : A totally unique piece. This is a very striking golden citrine cut in a design that I specifically intended for a pendant. It is a low profile so it will sit well against the chest. There is a "frosted" pentagram on the reverse side that was very tricky to photograph but it is there. A golden colour zone runs through the centre of the gem from side to side... it looks like a golden cloud. This is something a little bit different and would look absolutely fabulous set in yellow metal.

Comments : A beautiful rich and velvety madeira citrine from Uruguay. The gem has those wonderfully deep orange colours that this Uruguayan material is famous for. It is cut in my bright and flashy Sunflare design.

You can also see its "twin" which is a richly colour Uruguayan
amethyst cut in the same design, same size. Think of them as twin brother and sister. They are matched in terms of size and colour saturation and both are fine examples of their respective types. Simply stunning stones. I would love to keep them together when I sell them as they really do complement each other. An imaginative jeweller could do amazing things with this combo.

Stone : Flame Orange Citrine
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2013
Item : #521
Design : Kalli (Jeff Graham)
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : Heated
Weight : 11.4 carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 13 x 13 x 12.5 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : Presenting a stunning 185 facet flame orange ctrine masterpiece. This beauty is cut in one of Jeff Graham's 'dome' designs called "Kalli". This incredible design has 185 facets which makes for a stone that is time consuming to cut but so well worth it when done. The crown dome really enhances the colours of the gem, intensifies them, and creates a sense of depth inside the gemstone, a real 3D space. The reflections, patterns and sparkles are truly wonderful and they fill the gem with so much life. This design was made to be bezel set.

The colours are rich and intense, a real flame orange gold. In all lighting conditions the gem is just one big beautiful ball of golden light, even with the arm outstretched there is no missing this baby. The crown dome catches all the surrounding light which makes this one a great evening stone... it really does glow. Its one of those rare gems that will totally captivate and mesmerize you when you see it.

A connoisseur's gemstone.

I have also shown some 'action' shots that I took as I was cutting this gem. These might give you an insight into how such a gemstone is cut. The first stage is the pavilion. This is cut and polished and then placed in a 'transfer' block. The first part is held with a type of wax, the second half is held with a two part epoxy.

Next we cut and polish the crown. With this design, this is the time consuming part. There are alot of facets there to cut and polish and each facet is touched 5 times... 280 grit, 600, 1200, 3000 and then finally the polish. So with 185 facets, I'm really cutting 925 facets by the time I work through from the course grits to the polish!

Comments : A wonderful, golden citrine cut in an oval design with good body. It has a beautiful flashiness about it and it very alive and sparkly. The colours are a lovely golden yellow, not the lemon yellow or often overly saturated whiskey colour. It is a perfect size for a ring and would really show up well. The gemstone is eye clean with no visible flaws or inclusions. There is some colour zoning but the colours mix nicely and are not overly saturated when viewing the stone from the face up. The finish on this stone is superb and the polish is mirror like. A very pleasing gem.

Colour : Y2
Size : 14 x 14 x 12.5 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : This is one for the collectors. The design is based on the "All Seeing Eye" which is usually portrayed as an eye inside a triangle, often shown with radiating beams of light. I had a tough time trying to capture the eye effect but just couldn't seem to get it right. In one of the photos you can make out a darkish eye shape... the dark is due to reflection of the camera lens. In person it is fantastic with bright flashing rays of light around the eye. The design itself is quite a challenging one to cut and requires alot of patience and precision to get the eye and iris just right. A very different and unique gem.

Comments : This gemstone has a nice golden colour with a touch of smokey about it. There is good flash. As the name suggests it has a shape much like an acorn. It was designed as a ring stone and will require a custom seting made for it due to the depth and overall shape of the stone. There is a small feather veil inclusion.

Comments : A nice lightly coloured asscher cut citrine. This particular combination of colour, stone and cut is fast becoming a classic. The light tones show the windmill patterns that the asscher is famous for very nicely. The pics show more brown then what is actually in the gem which is very yellow and bright.

There are some pics that show the two asschers #217 and #211 next to each other. This is so you can compare the colours of the two stones. #217 is the lighter coloured gem.

Weight : 1.1 carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 6 x 6 x 5 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : This rich deep madeira citrine looks stunning cut in the classic Asscher Cut design. Before I cut it I thought that the madeira colour might be too dark for an Asscher but when I was finished I was pleasantly surprised that that was the case. It works very well in the Asscher and shows the patterns nicely. The colour, even though its hard to tell in the pics, in real life is very close to the darker orange coloured spessartite garnet... they are very similar. This is a fine gemstone.

Rio-Grande Citrine, Victoria Cut, Brazil, #266

Stone : Rio-Grande Citrine
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2010
Item : #266
Design : Victoria Cut (Fred Van Sant)
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : Heated
Weight : 2.2 carats each
Clarity : Eye Clean
Size : 8 x 8 x 7 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : An absolutely stunning matched pair of rio-grande citrines cut in the classic Victoria Cut design. If only more people realised just how gorgeous citrine is... the rich, velvety tones and interplay of colours, the unique personality of each stone is very perceptible. These two gems are matched and came from the same piece of rough stone... these I call "siblings". And just like all twins they are the same yet different. One of these gems was deep in the colour zone and the other had a little bit of zoning. This gives them an individuality and makes them quite special. A very fine pair of gemstones!

Citrine, Honeycomb Cut, #152

Stone : Citrine
Cut By : Doug Menadue, 2009
Item : #152
Design : Honeycomb Cut
Origin : Brazil
Treatments : None
Weight : 6.88 carats
Clarity : Eye Clean
Colour : Y5
Size : 12 x 12 x 9 mm
Price : SOLD

Comments : This is a pretty groovey gemstone. The design is one of Fred Van Sant's original designs and is rarely seen cut. The design creates a honeycomb effect and suits the bright yellow golden colours of this citrine... afterall, when you think of fresh honeycomb what colour do you think of first? The pictures are more brown and caramel then the stone actually is... it is a bright and flashy yellow gold. I can see this stone as part of a matched suite : earrings, pendant and a ring.

Comments : This stone was found by a wonderful couple who came on a topaz digging tour with me. They had a bonanza of a day and found some great stone. They asked me to cut this gem for them as I mentioned that I like to cut big stones and this one certainly was that. Besides the topaz for which O'Briens Creek is famous, some excellent citrine, smokey and aquamarine is also found. This citrine was unearthed as a large water worn pebble. The couple have since informed me that they've had it professionally set by a master jeweller as a pendant and it looks absolutely fabulous!

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.
