Citrine Tumbled Stones
These citrine tumbled stones are gorgeous. I do believe that they are heat-treated to create the color. Since I am a huge fan of natural citrine I believe this to be true. These stones are still wonderful in this form to use for home decor, crystal grids, mojo bags and healing practices with a slightly different take on their healing properties. One thing I noticed about these particular "tumbles" is that they have a lot of rainbows and are simply - pretty. Some have more white in them and a lighter yellow coloring and others are more ginger to brow but they are all truly pretty stones.
Sizes: vary from 1-2 inches in length.
About heat treated Citrine
Natural citrine is very rare. Large quantities of amethyst, usually of lesser quality, are heated to turn it yellow or orange and sold as "citrine." Because the color is now caused by finely distributed iron minerals (mostly hematite and goethite), heated amethyst is not citrine in the strict sense, and also shows no dichroism in polarized light.
This crystal is wonderful for those who have a tendency towards and 'doom and gloom', it lifts dark moods and thought patterns, encouraging optimism. It is because Natural citrine is very rare to find and a lot more expensive, that treated citrine exists. Yes, it may alter or change some of the metaphysical properties, but it is still an amazing crystal to have and use, and when combining with other crystals can work perfectly in combination with them, to create the same results one will be looking for when thinking of natural citrine itself.
