The Citrine is a relatively hard gemstone and is a durable gemstone that can withstand a lot before breaking. Avoid exposing your Citrine jewellery to direct sunlight for prolonged periods, as this can cause the colour to fade. Also avoid high, sudden changes in temperature, as this may
cause cracks.

When cleaning your Citrine jewellery, use warm water,
a mild detergent, and a soft brush or cloth. Citrine is also safe to use in an ultrasound cleaner, but not with steam, as heat will cause the stone to crack.
