Agreed! Especially the pink, purple, & teal!
No I don’t provide that info because it trudges into unfamiliar territory.
I started mine January 2011. I follow your’s from my personal tumblr. Lovely pictures. I’m surprised what a large collection you have.
I just broke 20,000 followers. It’s amazing that many of you hear what I have to say/ see what I post.
Dont feel too bad - apparently most ‘citrine’ out there is actually heat treated amethyst. Real citrine is relatively rare. It looks more like this (more lemon yellow than golden brown): http://www.minerals.net/gemstone/citrine.aspx?img=/RoughImage/3/9/Citrine.aspx
Thanks for this submission. I didn’t know that could be done! I love learning from my followers. Heat treating or metal treating doesn’t bother me, it’s really only unnatural dyes that get to me. At least it starts from amethyst, a member of the same quartz family. I still think my gift from my mom is beautiful and special.
should really be made of minerals. Like my Amethyst Eggy could totally knock over your Shattuckite Sharkey. Oh well. They’re not. But I am selling regular old plastic ones on my eBay shop. You could always pretend…..
