Citrine was named about 450 years ago after the French word citron, which means citrus.
Prior to this, it has been identified as chrysolitus (meaning golden stone) in both Latin and Roman verisons of the Old Testament, but it’s more likely that this was confused with Topaz.
Citrine was worn for protection, and in the 17th Century, it was used to adorn the dagger handles of weapons, and guard against snake venom.
Citrine was believed to have great mystical and healing powers and considered as a tonic for detoxifying and purifying the body by relieving symptoms of depression and anger.
