The name of the stone is derived from a French word, which means lemon. Since as long as 300 B.C., Citrine has been a popular ornamental gem of the jewelers. Initially, they were the most loved amongst the Romans and Greeks, however later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria also became fascinated with the gemstone. Citrine also encompasses many healing properties, such as boosting digestive and endocrine system by cleansing out the toxins and purifying. They are considered a great stone to provide relaxation in anxious circumstances like depression, panic attack, stress, etc.
