Crystal structure/formation

Citrine crystals occur when amethyst undergoes either natural volcanic or artificially induced heating, through double subduction. The process of heating changes the internal chemistry of the original amethyst into that which then constitutes Citrine. Manufactured Citrine is relatively cheap and widely available however, due to the conditions necessary for its formation, natural Citrine is much rarer. Typically, heat treated Citrine can be distinguished by its much stronger colouration, chemically however, the two types are identical.

“Whilst crystals can be helpful in the healing of mental and physical conditions, they should not be seen as or used as a replacement for professional medical advice”.
