Its 30th November and today is last day of our Gemstone each month series (GEMS) for Citrine. We have explored a lot about citrine in past few days. Just to recap, here are links to some interesting posts on citrine again.

Our last post on this series is on ‘How to care for citrine’. Your citrine could last for generations if you take care of it in the right way.

  • Although citrine is pretty good at standing up to your normal everyday wear and tear, it must be shielded from any type of situation where it could be scratched or hit.
  • Because of its sensitivity to heat, its recommended for a citrine not to be left in the sun or where it could be exposed to prolonged sunlight or heat. The stone’s color might change and fade into a lighter color in that case.
  • Any commercial jewelry cleaner or plain soap and warm water can be used to wash your citrine. Steam cleaning is not recommended but you may have the stone cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner.

So thats all we had to say about citrine, if you think we missed anything in this series, please feel free to comment.

We would be deciding our december Gemstone soon :-), any recommendations? please comment or email us at info@jewelstruck.com

Gold and Lapis Lazuli Ring

Gold and Lapis Lazuli Ring

This is one of those piece that just happen! I had a small square piece of gold and wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, looking through my stones I came across this lovely lapis lazuli, being a big fan of gold and blue a design suddenly came to me, so I made a gold wire ring and solder the gold square to it add a bezel for the stone and solder some loops to hang some beads and a ring was born!
