History: Known several hundred years BCE, the citrine gemstone first found appreciation in Ancient Greece, where it was used as a decorative gem. Ancient Romans believed that the stone could protect against evil thoughts and other cultures of the time believed it would bring prosperity to individuals who held the stone.
Silver's history is long. The first evidence of silver mining dates back to 3000 B.C., in Turkey and Greece, according to the RSC. Ancient people even figured out how to refine silver. They heated the silver ore and blew air over it, a process called cupellation.
