This Citrine is completely natural. Much Citrine you will see today is actually heat treated Amethyst, it has a distinctive orange brown colouration. All this involves is putting Amethyst in an oven for a few hours. Natural formed Citrine is now a rare crystal and so man in his wisdom has decided to heat treat Amethyst which is abundant and cheap and sell it as the more expensive Citrine. The crystal for these stones is from old stock from Brazil, it is considerably paler than the darker and often smoky material presently coming from Madagascar and The Congo and it has a lovely shine and ‘light’ about it. This stone is beautifully clear.
The stone you see in the photographs is the stone you will receive.
Tumblestones are an ideal size to hold during meditation or to be used as pocket stones. Carry them in your bag or pocket or place them under your pillow.
