About Citrine

From all semi-precious gemstones, citrine is the second most sought after (after blue topaz). While citrine remains a gemstone with very high demand, it's quite rare in nature. As a result many stones, especially quartz, are commonly heat treated to look like citrine. Citrine's attractive color, plus its durability makes it the top-selling yellow-to-orange gem.

 

Santa Ana Madeira citrine is one of the most valuable citrines, displaying an intensely saturated red-orange to red-brown color. Gemstones with highly saturated yellow, orange and reddish tones are considered to be the most valuable.

 

 

 

More On Appraisal Certificates

Appraisal Certificates are done from accredited appraisers and represent the retail insurance replacement value for an item.  While many companies do appraisals (such as jewelry stores), it is important to receive an appraisal by a group that does not involve themselves in the buying or selling of Gems or jewelry pieces as to avoid any conflict of interest.  We typically use AGL or GS Labs (Gemscan), accredited appraisal companies (with Global Offices) for the Jewelry industry, located in downtown Toronto.  We also have a number of Certificates from EGL a global appraisal company to the gem industry whose Toronto offices have since closed down.

An appraisal will assign a monetary value to a Gem or piece of jewelry and is ultimately subjective based on the appraiser's criteria for grading and experience.  For this reason, only accredited and experienced appraisers are used to evaluate stones.  An appraisal is not an indication of your buying power, that depends on your ability to "wheel and deal" as well as your source of supply and ability to buy in parcel lots or in bulk.
