# CIT-23, $35.00 Sold!
Dims: 3.44x3.41x1.65" (8.73x8.66x4.20cm) .... Wt: 9.77oz (277g) .... Loc: Minas Gerais, Brazil
This specimen is classified as a citrine because of its slightly yellow tint, but I could have calld it a smoky quartz, too, because at first glance the quartz looks gray. While most of the mass of the specimen is this cirtine, most of the surface is covered by an assortment of minerals, including albite, biotite, and very odd formations of a pink mineral that was documented as lepidolite, and while it does look like lepidolite in a few small areas, it mostly looks granular or even botryoidal, with an amethyst color. I do not know what it is, but it does lend color and contrast to the specimen.
# CIT-22, $25.00 Sold!
Dims: 1.39x1.13x0.73" (3.52x2.87x1.86cm) .... Wt: 0.39oz (10.9g) .... Loc: Murzinka, Urals, Russia
This is a nice little specimen of natural citrine crystals. The citrine is a pale yellow with a hint of gray, especially in the larger crystals. The citrine is quite transparent with few inclusions, although there are rusty areas on the outside surface. Most of the points and edges have minor damage which is not readily visible without a loupe.
# CIT-21, $30.00 Sold!
Dims: 2.06x0.67x0.54" (5.24x1.70x1.37cm) .... Wt: 0.72oz (20.4g) .... Loc: Murzinka, Urals, Russia
This is essentially a single large citrine crystal, although there is a base of milky quartz and one smaller citrine crystal interpenetrating two sides of the primary crystal. The citrine is extremely pale, and is transparent with a vitreous luster that has been dulled by numerous tiny pits on the crystal faces. The tip and several edges show damage.
# CIT-20, $32.00 Sold!
Dims: 1.37x1.27x0.79" (3.48x3.22x2.01cm) .... Wt: 0.74oz (20.9g) .... Loc: Murzinka, Urals, Russia
This is a cluster of a half-dozen natural citrine crystals. They are almost a smoky quartz, as they are a yellow-gray in color. The crystals are transparent with good prismatic form, although they are closely intergrown so that none of the crystals has all six sides exposed (except on their terminations). While they look undamaged (except for the base), close examination reveals damage to all of the points and some of the edges.
