Where to buy?

For Citrine or Aquamarine check what Amazon has to offer. You'll usually find quite a selection from many different vendors. Worth a check. For other high quality gemstones (Rubies, Saphhires, Emeralds) and especially Diamonds, I highly recommend JamesAllen.

Face-up Size

All things being equal, Aquamarine will face-up slightly smaller than Citrine for a given carat weight, because it has higher specific gravity (2.7 vs. 2.65 - this means it's "slightly heavier" compared to Citrine of the same size). Face-up size also depends heavily on the proportions of the cut.

Face-up area is a measure of the size of the gem when viewed from above (as set in a ring). It tells you how big the gem is at the girdle plane.
