Description

Citrine Druze Specimen
Citrine ranges in color from pale to golden yellow, honey or almost brown. A variety of quartz; it’s name comes from the French word ‘citron,’ meaning lemon. Citrine was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and it is sometimes mistakenly referred to as gold topaz, Madeira or Spanish Topaz, or safranite because of its color. Specimens may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions and/or calcite crystals. People are often unaware that most of the commercial citrine on the market is actually heat-treated amethyst or smokey quartz. This is done to lower-grade specimens and it produces an enhanced citrine color, often a deep amber or orange/red shade.
This citrine druze is positioned vertically and fixed in a handmade wooden base. (base has a few scratches)
