#Prep on these insanely gorgeous citrines!
It's surprisingly difficult to find genuine citrine, a lot of what is advertised as such is actually heat-treated Amethyst, which transforms into a brilliant yellow, with opaque white areas. Genuine citrine ranges from honey coloured to brown, and is translucent, sometimes murky. Why someone would ever want to change a lovely Amethyst is beyond me!
For honesty purposes, I refer to any heat-treated Amethyst as "Lemon Amethyst" as it still carries all the meta properties as Amethyst, only the colour has changed. I would never knowingly sell a crystal under the wrong name, and hope other distributers will begin making this distinction for their clients.
So happy citrine Tuesday, I'm thrilled about my latest lot!
