Yellow-orange is the light of late afternoon on a spring or summer day when the sun is
dropping and quality of light mellows and softens. It's a time of quietness and reflection
near the end of the day before the business of evening.
Most citrine gemstones are yellow-orange, and the same is true of amber. Champagne quartz
can be a lovely mellow yellow-orange, as well as imperial topaz. Yellow aventurine, golden jade,
yellow calcite and aragonite are not as common but warm yellow-hued stones. The warm mellow tones
of gold make it a good candidate for this color group.
Swarovski crystal colors "citrine" and "topaz" have been available for years, and
"sunflower" is a welcome new addition. "Crystal golden shadow" has a touch more tan
but it is a lovely golden color.
Naturally colored pearls are more cream than golden, and yellow-orange dyed pearls aren't all that
