Quartz var. Citrine (old find)
stock #17.1-AX-10-935
"Santander Pegmatite"
Santander, Colombia
4.7 x 2.1 x 1.7 CM (miniature)
price: $330
May 2015

A fine and gemmy Citrine pair of sharp crystals from a find made in Colombia in the 1970s. There have not been more since these came out, and this is a good example of the quality of the find. An extremely small chip is noted on this, otherwise in fine condition with delicate lemon color. Where the two crystals are joined there are interesting wispy inclusions some of which are curved and hairlike. The location has always been given as the "Santander Pegmatite" of which there are many. Recent attempts to relocate this find have so far failed.
