Lemon Quartz

 

Lemon quartz is a much paler yellow than citrine but apart from the colour difference the stones are very similar and belong to the same family. It is mostly mined in Brazil and usually cut in larger sizes. Like its "sister" stone green quartz or prasolite, it has become very popular in recent years.
