Citrine 10 x 8 mm Pear Cut Brazilian Gemstone Weighs 2.05 Carats-AWESOME CLARITY & TRANSPARENCY-Lemon Yellow Color-November Birthstone
This material was mined in Brazil.
Citrine very rarely occurs in nature and when it does, its quality does not allow it to be used as gemstones for jewelry due to its unappealing color, high inclusion rate, cracks and lack of transparency.
The majority of available citrine on the market was formed by super heating the finest quality amethyst (usually from Brazil or Uruguay). This heating procedure turns amethyst into citrine (just as prasiolite or green amethyst is amethyst that has been irradiated to change the color to prasiolite's unique green color).
Depending on the amethyst starting material's saturation and other factors such as length of heating, the temperature at which the material is heated, and how quickly or slowly it is allowed to cool, determines the color of the final citrine product. It can vary from light yellow all the way to golden-brown-burgundy. The latter is called "madeira" citrine and was named after the color of madeira wine. Madeira citrine is the most valuable and coveted of all citrines. If you are interested in madeira citrine, I do have some oval madeira citrine for sale in my shop. Just check under the "gemstones/cabochons" section of my shop to view this stunning gemstone.
This material is a lemon yellow color and has amazing clarity and transparency.
It has been cut and faceted into a beautiful teardrop or pear shaped gemstone.
The stone measures 10 x 8 mm and weighs 2.05 carats.
Citrine is one of the two birthstones for November. If you are a November baby or know someone who is and you are looking for a nice gift for them, why not give either the loose gemstone or have it set into a piece of jewelry. You or your giftee will not be disappointed. This is one beautiful gemstone.
This stone would make a gorgeous ring, pendant, wire wrapping or simply as an addition to your personal gemstone collection.

Shipping & policies
My shipping rates are a flat fee of 4.50 for the first item and 0.99 for each additional item in the same order. This covers all the costs of envelopes, packaging material, handling fees and trips to the post office. Unfortunately, the USPS has raised their rates on ALL domestic and international packages by over 35 percent as of Thursday, January 31, 2018. I sincerely apologize for the shipping rate increase but is beyond my control.
If you are an INTERNATIONAL BUYER, please contact me prior to checkout so I can look up the correct postage for your particular country. Sometimes there are issues with the customs agency of your country, so expect that there might possibly be a delay in delivery of your item. Please note, once a package leaves the United States, there is nothing I can really do to find out exactly where your package might be. If there is an issue, please use the customs number I provided with your order and contact your country's customs agency to find out when you may expect to receive your item.
Additionally, for both domestic and international orders, please understand that I cannot be held responsible for incorrectly delivered packages, stolen packages or items lost by the United States post office or your country's postal service. In these cases, I will do my best to work with you to locate your package with the tracking number provided by USPS or in international shipping cases the customs number for your package. This also includes items being returned to me for refunds or exchanges as well.
Most of my jewelry is inexpensive so insurance is not necessary however some more expensive items, ie. emeralds, ruby, tanzanite, morganite and sapphires, & some of the vintage coins must be insured. PLEASE NOTE: Insurance and tracking fees have already been calculated in the shipping costs you see posted for any items requiring insurance. All items with a value over $100 will be insured for both the buyer's and seller's protection.

Thank you for taking the time to read and understand my shop policies.
All the best!
All items purchased from my shop carry a 30 day warranty. Any item found to be damaged within 30 days of original receipt date will either be replaced (if possible) or a refund given for the full purchase price including shipping costs.
PLEASE NOTE: Items that are deemed to be damaged by improper handling or cleaning on the part of the purchaser are not covered under this warranty.
It is highly advised that you inspect your gemstone or jewelry piece very carefully immediately upon receipt because after the thirty day warranty period expires from the original receipt date, I cannot issue any refunds or exchanges for any purchase of any kind. This is in part due to the large number of attempted scams that force me to strictly adhere to this policy.
I have included some tips and pointers below to aid you in taking better care of your merchandise and specific cleaning techniques to help minimize potential damage occurring to your jewelry or gems.
Many of my gemstone jewelry items can be fragile if not protected from knocks and bumps due to their hardness scores on the Moh's scale. Care must be taken by the buyer to protect against damage especially rings as they are the type of jewelry most susceptible to damage and softer, more brittle gemstones, for example, opals and gemstones with lower Moh's numbers.
Care must also be taken when cleaning certain gemstones. Never use ANY harsh chemicals or ultrasonic cleaning on ANY items purchased from my shop. Using plain mild soap and warm water with an ultra soft toothbrush is the best cleaning method. This will help avoid damage to the gemstones used in creating some of my jewelry items and the gemstones themselves.
If you have any additional questions on how to take care of and protect your specific gemstone or jewelry piece, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to share my knowledge with you.
ENJOY YOUR PURCHASE!!!!
