It's not hard to see why citrine got its name from the Latin word citrina, which means "yellow." Iron within the crystal structure creates the yellow-orange color that we see. Because natural citrine is incredibly rare, this mineral is most commonly created from heat treating amethysts or smokey quartzes.
