Yellow stone identification

0 votes


I was hoping someone help me. I found a yellow stone which I thought was just an unusual coloured rock but when I shone a torch light behind it later I discovered it wasn't opaque but translucent when light was applied behind it. It doesn't look smooth yet It feels smooth to touch even on uneven edges. It was found in an area well known for sapphires.

Can anyone tell me how I can determine what it is - Citrine or Sapphire or something else?

Thank you.
