Citrine is a Yellow variety of the Quartz family of crystals. It sits at a 7 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness and takes a great polish.
All commonly recognized Citrine on the market is usually heat treated to obtain the vibrant color. It is a common practice for the industry, in polished stones, jewelry, and specimens. The heat treated stones are chemically identical to natural citrine, and cannot be differentiated with modern testing. Through experience, we have learned that natural Citrine is usually a smoky yellow color, not the vibrant color we recognize today as Citrine.
This impressive Citrine specimen is 20 cm long, 12 cm wide, and 6 cm deep, and has a completely distinct appearance with a stripe of dark grey and pale blue running along the sides following the shape of the cluster. The coloring is complimentary with a shimmering opaque white blending into yellow. The surface is incredibly gemmy and has a warm orange/yellow color in the top crystals with the splattering of bark dots known to citrine. All-in-all this is one remarkable piece of Citrine, and would be ideal for display anywhere you want a bright presence!
Citrine has long been associated with the sun, and is thought to encourage a sunny disposition. It is thought to attract prosperity, positivity, and good health. It is often a stone recommended to lift moods, encourage positive thinking, and bring abundance.
