Sun Salute Earrings
Sun Salute - Round earring post set with Citrine, with teardrop faceted citrine dangle and
wire bezel

Citrine's name comes from the French word for lemon,"citron." Citrine includes yellow to
gold to orange brown shades of transparent quartz. A sunny gemstone, citrine can
brighten almost any jewelry style, blending especially well with the yellow gleam of
polished gold.

In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts.
Although the darker, orange colors of citrine, sometimes called Madeira citrine after the
color of the wine, has generally been the most valued color, in modern times, many people
prefer the bright lemony shades which mix better with pastel colors. Most citrine is mined
in Brazil.
