November’s Birthstone - CITRINE Physical Properties and Science of Citrine
Citrine is found in igneous (rocks produced under conditions involving intense heat) and metamorphic rocks, particularly in granite and gneiss. It is also found in classic sediments (matter that settles to the bottom of a liquid). Most good crystals are found as gauge minerals in mineral veins. Citrine is often found in association with http://elegantdiamonds.net/images/Blog/2017/tinyamethyst.jpgamethyst, but it is much more rare than its purple cousin. Because it resists weathering, it is also found in alluvial sands and gravels. The largest supplier of natural citrine is the Rio Grande do Sol state in Southern Brazil. Citrine mines in the US are found in Colorado, North Carolina and California. The gemstone is also found all over the world, in Spain, Brazil, Africa, South Africa, France, Britain, Madagascar and the Soviet Union.
Although, not celebrated as much as Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald, Citrine holds its own position. Here’s a look at world’s most stylish Citrine celebrity jewelry: The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is one of the most famous personalities, extremely fond of Citrine jewelry. She has been spotted wearing delicate Citrine danglers and drop earrings on several occasions. The fiery golden of this stone matches young royal’s equally elegant clothing ensembles.

Angelina Jolie Donates Yellow Citrine Necklace To Smithsonian Angelina Jolie has gifted a citrine necklace to the Smithsonian Institution ’s National Gem Collection. The piece is from the Style of Jolie jewelry collection, a collaboration between the actress and humanitarian, and American high jewelry designer, Robert Procop.
The 18k yellow gold necklace features 64 graduated bezel-set cushion-shaped citrine gems centered by a 177.11-carat pear-shaped citrine drop. The new piece, named the “Jolie Citrine Necklace,” is being displayed in the Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals starting today and will remain on view indefinitely. It’s the same hall that contains the Hope Diamond, the Star of Asia sapphire and other famous gems.
“We are thrilled to receive this important piece for the Smithsonian,” said Jeffrey Post, curator of the National Gem Collection. “It is the first piece of citrine jewelry in the collection. The fact that it was personally designed by Angelina Jolie Pitt and Robert Procop makes it all the more significant.”(see image below)
