The inexpensive low grade amethyst is heated at high temperatures to produce the popular orange, reddish and sherry colored citrine. Darker colors are considered more valuable, including the medium golden orange and dark sherry-colors. Ancient Romans and Greeks were very fond of this striking stone and used it in their jewelries in a special style known as ‘intaglio’ that included relief carving.
