Lot Details
Rare Citrine Sphere
Minas Gerais, Brazil
Much of the citrine commercially available on the market today is amethyst which may have been heat-enhanced to produce a yellow color. The present sphere is rare due to the fact that it was carved of natural, untreated citrine of very good clarity. Beautifully polished, this is the largest, most “gemmy” sphere of citrine to be offered at public auction of which we are aware. Weighing 21.4 lbs, Diameter 8in
