A gorgeous natural citrine from Zambia. This authentic Zambian citrine is a deep honey colour with a beautiful transparency. It's terminations are near perfect with very minor chips.
Mysterious in the hand, blazing inner fire in the sun! This special piece is 1.9 lbs, double terminated, overall tabular and radiates a very holistic peaceful vibe. One terminus is near perfect in excellent condition, with a baby crystal growing out and a mini-cathedral, and the other terminus has a slightly damaged double point also with baby crystals emerging. Faces are mostly clean with slight hematite and clay staining.
This piece is a magical castle, truly special and unique.

We have visited the mine at Mansa and seen the process of mining this citrine. The work is primarily done with hand tools and is a laborious process. We did a workshop with the miners about better caring for the crystals as they are taken out and as they are transported.
Citrine is the November Birthstone and is widely considered to be a "master healer" type of quartz crystal by those who work with crystals for their metaphysical properties. Citrine is an essential part of the toolkit for crystal bodywork, reiki, meditation, crystal gridding, and creating sacred spaces. The golden radiance of citrine provides warmth and increases feelings of abundance.
We have been collecting mineral specimens in Southern Africa since 2002. We focus on bringing a wide variety of unusual, beautiful and energetic minerals!
