Item Description

Often times, one encounters Citrine gems on the market that were altered to turn them yellow. Typically these stones start out as natural Amethyst which are heated to create the yellow color. This stone is more than likely a heated gem that was once Amethyst. With that said, this stone has a beautiful golden hue along with virtually eye clean clarity and a "Pear Brilliant" cut. Very attractive in person, and keep in mind that Citrine is one of the birthstones for the month of November.
