citrine is sometimes confused with yellow topaz, a similar but more expensive gemstone. For this reason, citrine is sometimes known as false topaz or topaz quartz. (Citrine is sometimes falsely sold as topaz.)
Along with topaz, citrine is one of the birthstones for the month of November. It is also considered a traditional gift for a 13th wedding anniversary (at least among the people who make up these things).
The word citrine is also used to refer to a pale shade of yellow.
