This lot has been in storage for over 10 years (since 2001) and was just recently made available for sale. We bought it instantly when we saw it while purchasing some other citrine from the mine. We can't stress how rare it is to find material like this which is totally natural, and completely untreated. It is high graded facet material just like it came out of the ground back in 2001! It is nearly impossible to find this material anymore, let alone a quantity of material like this all in one place.
While normally material like this would be sold by the piece, you are bidding on a minimum of 250 carats of this spectacular facet grade natural citrine!
The images of this material were taken with a normal digital camera without a flash, under one or two standard 5K "natural sunlight" bulbs. There was no color correction or editing of any kind done to these pictures. The images you see are exactly how they came from our digital camera.
