Hi everyone:) I found some relly nice 2 pairs citrine carved pears on ebay that i like to make earrings, and wanted to know your opinion.
I was concerned about are those citrines natural, lab grown, heated amethysts or dyed chalcedony,
so i asked the seller and he said its "all natural and he provides a certificate'' witch is probably him stating its"all natural":).
Could anyone say smthing about nature of these stones, treatments if any? If natural citrine, price seams low to me for such a intense color. :) thx a lot:))

OK, my first question is "certified" by whom?

Almost all citrine is heat treated amethyst.....a very large percentage of amethyst is synthetically made.

This is what he said in email:
"We will provide certificates for all the items. These carvings are 100% natural and are of top quality."
As i said, i guess he writes certificates in free time:).. Unfortunately i think a valid certificate would cost like a stone... So i guess its not worth risking buying it...

Worth noting that "natural" includes heated stones
