Description

An old crystal of citrine from Minas Gerais, Brasil. The specimen is an elongated, well formed crystal which is mostly transparent and displays an excellent orange color, especially when backlit (main picture). A very thin iron oxide coating is found on most faces.
The crystal comes from the former collection Burger (Switzerland), and it is a pre-1950s specimen, relabeled in modern times - hence the general locality. Minor peripheral bruising and chipping - to be expected, given the age.
