Just in from Brazil!
We just acquired several burlap sacks stuffed full of
unsearched citrine from an old mine in Brazil. The entire lot had neatly been
stored in these sacks, each of which weighs over 50 pounds, where they have sat
untouched for years.
When I first saw this stash I was in sheer amazement.
To put the size of this hoard into perspective, consider this: based on its
weight, it is barely shy of 2,000,000 carats! We are dividing all of this
citrine into 1,000+ carat bags (just shy of 1/2 pound!!!) and selling them for
only $15.95 per bag.
What a GREAT GIFT idea! These bags of unsearched
citrine will be fun for the whole family to search through together!!!
Imagine what you might find...
Citrine with excellent cut,
color, and clarity could be worth hundreds of dollars per carat. Each lot will
have pieces ranging in size from less than 1 carat to pieces that will weigh a
whopping 40 carats or more. Most of these will be great for tumbling, wire wrap
jewelry, or just really neat to have. And you never know when that very
precious gem will show up!
These citrine pieces are uncut, uncleaned, rough, mine run
citrine straight out of the mine. They are neither sorted through nor cherry
picked ~ they come to you as they have come to us directly from Brazil. Citrine
refers to any quartz crystal or cluster that is yellow or orange in color.
Although, often cut as a gemstone, citrine is actually somewhat rare in nature.
Much of the natural citrine may have started out as amethyst but heat from
nearby magmatic bodies may have caused the change to citrine. They will need to
be cleaned in order to be reveal the citrine gems that you will be the first
person ever to see!
It is a real treasure hunt with these because many times the outer crust hides
the best citrine crystals.
We cannot make any promises on exactly what you will
find, but we can promise that you will receive a great variety and variations in
color, size and shape of citrine pieces. Whether you are a beginning collector
looking to get started, an experienced collect or even a jeweler ~ satisfaction
guaranteed...or your money back!
