Smoky Quartz & Citrine Crystals from Brazil.
Smoky Quartz is a premier grounding & cleansing stone. Smoky Quartz is readily found in many locations around the world. A variety of Quartz, it is a silicon dioxide mineral ranging in color from pale, smoky gray to deep brown and black, sometimes yellowish-brown. It forms as crystals, drusy or in massive form, and its color is caused by impurities of aluminum and natural irradiation of the stone. Though Smoky Quartz can be nearly opaque, it is almost always transparent to translucent. Many gems on the market are Clear Quartz that have been artificially treated with radium or x-rays to turn the crystals dark, and are usually very dark and unnatural looking, often lacking in transparency, we never sell these stones at IVC and work hard to source only the best Natural Crystals in the world.

We were very fortunate to obtain this parcel of Elestials and other single crystals from the Diamantina Mines in Brazil. These latest offerings are beautiful. 35 pieces in the 24 kilo lot. Some Citrine and some Smoky Citrine.
Natural Citrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Carrying the power of the sun, it is warm and comforting, energizing and life giving. It stimulates the chakras like the sunlight of spring, clearing the mind and stirring the soul to action. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination, and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings and new pursuits.
Most citrine on the market people are used to seeing is Druzy / Cathedrals and is actually the result of heating / baking the Amethyst at high temperatures to obtain the color. See an example of that here : We never sell or buy this material at IVC
