Citrine is a yellow quartz gemstone that has been around for thousands of years. It is part of the quartz family that includes clear quartz, rose quartz, and smoky quartz. It is believed that citrine contains a solar quality of energy, as its colors are similar to that of the sun. Citrine is found in the United States, Spain, Brazil, Africa, France, Britain, Madagascar, and Russia.
Peridot is rich in iron and magnesium and found in lava, meteorites, and deep in the earth’s mantle. The ancient Egyptians mined peridot on the Red Sea island of Zabargad, the source for many large fine peridots in the world’s museums. The Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun.”
Peridot is found in China, Myanmar, Pakistan, Tanzania, Vietnam, and the United States. Peridot Beach, in Hawaii, is known for the shimmering green glow on white sand caused by ancient lava flows which deposited the gemstone sand after volcanic eruptions.
