Citrine is often referred to as the "healing quartz" due to its uplifting and energising properties. Its name is derived from the French word "citron," which means lemon, a nod to its sunny yellow colour. Citrine is associated with positivity, prosperity and abundance, making it an ideal gemstone for individuals seeking to embrace life's opportunities with optimism.


Topaz has a long and significant history, dating back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians believed that topaz was associated with the sun god Ra and that it possessed protective powers. In medieval Europe, topaz was thought to heal physical and mental ailments. This gemstone represents strength, wisdom and courage, serving as a symbol of power and influence.

The Significance of Citrine and Topaz

Citrine is often associated with warmth, joy and abundance, while topaz is considered a stone of protection, strength and clarity.
