What's the difference between natural Citrine and regular Citrine? When reading up on your Citrine, I noticed that you compared natural to heated and then compared natural to regular.

Thanks,

Edward H

Good Morning Edward,

Could you be so kind as to point out where these comparisons are exactly? I would love to be able to go in and correct the language to make the entries more clear. :)

Generally, most Citrine is heat treated or lab enhanced in some way. The majority of Citrine on the market is enhanced using this heat treating method. Most would refer to this as "regular".  Here is an example of heat treated Citrine: http://www.healingcrystals.com/Tumbled_Citrine_-_Tumbled_Stones.html

Citrine that is natural means that it has not been enhanced in any way. It comes out of the mines that way. Most natural Citrine is very pale or smoky to pale golden in color. This is what I refer to as "natural".  You can see an example here: http://www.healingcrystals.com/Cabochon_-_Citrine_Crystal_Cabochon.html

I hope this has been helpful!

With love and crystal blessings,

Kristi
