Citrine With Chlorite Inclusions
Cabinet, 10.8 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm
Olkhovka, Polar Urals, Russia
Citrine is very rare from Russia. We buy all the good specimens we can find, which amounts to only a handful a year, even though we have early access to most of the sources. This one does not have the intense acid-yellow color that some Russian ones do, but a lighter amber hue. The large, intergrown crystals here are in fine condition and complete all around. You can see a patch of green inside from inclusions of chlorite.
