This listing is for one 16 inches Strand of 10mm Citrine beads in Flat Diamond shape. Each strand of beads is similar to the photo, but is unique due to natural variations.
In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts, but it didn't see substantial use as a gemstone in jewelry until the Romantic Period (1837-1860). Citrine is valued for the treatment of depression and is said to eliminate self-destructive tendencies. It also is purported to stimulate memory, aid digestion, remove toxins from the body and fight diabetes. Citrine symbolizes light-heartedness, joy, happiness, wisdom and peace, and is said to enhance creativity and motivate writers. Our citrine mainly comes from India, but Brazil is also a major source of the world's citrine.
