Citrine Crystals are a variety of quartz and are closely related to Amethyst. Many of the stones on the market are created from Amethyst Crystals by heat treatment.
Although it is believed that this process does not actually damage the stone, the heat treated stones have different qualities to the natural genuine Citrine crystals.
