Citrine is mostly a yellow gemstone that, in the French language, means "lemon."

Long ago, people thought citrine gems could help make them feel peaceful, reduce anger, and bring good things like money. To benefit from these effects, Egyptians carried Citrine as good luck charms, the Greeks carved pictures on them, and Roman priests made them into rings. After people learned to tell the difference between Citrine and topaz, they started using Citrine a lot in jewelry for both women and men. Even today, Citrine is still one of the most common and inexpensive yellow gemstones that people buy.
