1.878kg Flat of Zambian citrine includes a range of colours from golden to bright yellow. The crystals are varying in size and shape.
In October 2018, we traveled to the mine in Zambia to collect wonderous natural citrine crystals. We watched as the crystals were unearthed and were allowed to even dig ourselves.
Very simple means are used to extract the stones, shovels and picks. The job is to find the veins producing the crystals which appear ever deeper.
Working directly at the mine, then bringing the beautiful crystals to North America, we are pleased to present this fine citrine to you directly.
Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. Everything about this stone emanates positivity and joy. Even its name, which is derived from the French word for lemon, carries a sense of sun and joy attached to it. Found naturally in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and USA, this gemstone has been an ornamental gem for civilizations as early as 300 B.C., and a favourite with jewellery makers since the ancient Greeks and Romans.
We have been collecting mineral specimens in Southern Africa since 2002. We focus on bringing a wide variety of unusual, beautiful and energetic minerals!
