Some fun facts about Citrine
1) Although often compared to the Topaz, the similar-looking stones are from two completely different, unrelated families!

Citrine was used by ancient Egyptians to craft valuable talismans, by Greeks as carving tablets on which to record notable religious and historical events, and by Roman priests to create rings and other jewelry.
3) Not only is Citrine aesthetically attractive, but it is also one of the most affordable (and most frequently purchased) gemstones. Wow!
