One of the few natural citrine specimens I have run across in my career, on a matrix of hematite blades, and a darker orange variety of quartz currently known as tangerine quartz. A doubly terminated crystal lies in suspension, horizontally, between two other members in a most unique fashion. 4.0 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches.
