Natural Citrine from Mansa, Luapula Province, Zambia. A lot of citrine is heat treated to get the yellow color, but this is a very nice natural colored crystal from a limited find that occurred right at the end of 2010. It's getting harder to find any natural citrine and when you do, the price is now very high. I wanted to offer something natural, and keep the price real. This little golden beauty does that, but I will mention, in the interest of full disclosure, that to my eye, it looks like the tip of this has had a light retouch to restore it to pristine shape. Many of these points were damaged during collection and this is a common measure taken nowadays to keep crystals looking their best.
