In this new batch of beads, one of the strands had slightly smaller stones, so I'm listing them here.
Both citrine and amethyst are quartz colored by iron impurities, but citrine requires heat. Amethyst is far more abundant in nature, so most citrine on the market is heated amethyst.
Manufacturers often tumble polish low-quality, pale citrine in orange wax which imparts some color to the stone. These were tumbled in clear wax, so the color is true.
Buy them here in packs of 5 beads or save money on a full strand.
