Item Description

This an absolutely stunning and gigantic faceted NATURAL Citrine gem. Citrine may be well known among gem dealers and collectors, but the majority of the material on the market has been treated to enhance or even CREATE the yellow color, and this stone is undoubtedly the largest, cleanest faceted Citrine I've seen from this area, and may quite possibly be the largest one from this area extant. This gem is an interesting "smoky" golden color, very slightly included piece with a highly desirable "Portuguese Oval" cut. This is a true "museum" stone, and ANY gem with this size with this clarity is rare regardless of the material! The color of the stone is partiuclarly important because this is naturally occuring NON-heated Citrine, and it is not a Brazilian stone either. Legitimately, this stone retails for about $25012.50 ($15 per carat), and you would be hard pressed to find another like it in your life, especially for about 6% of retail! The bid increments on this item have been increased to $25 due to the higher starting bid. I'm sure that one of you is going to get this gigantic stone for a tremendous bargain. This is the kind of stone that adorns the front of storefronts and the center of the finest gem and jewelry displays.
