Lemon Quartz Necklace. Hand cut by Clay Collins of “Tronic Rocks” fame. Hand beaded by Dee with Citrine and Pineapple Quartz.
Lemon quartz is created by great heating of amethyst and quartz at extremely high temperatures. This heating process is what gives quartz a brilliant, yellow color. The radiant beauty of this natural lemon quartz is truly dazzling, particularly when light catches the natural fractures and it truly comes to life. Extremely rare, this process occurs naturally in very few areas.
Today it is difficult to find Lemon Quartz that is not treated by heat from man made sources, making this pendant so extremely valuable as it is a natural gemstone.
Quartz is said to help structure, focus and amplify thoughts and information. It is also thought to transmit energy. Because the color yellow is associated with clarity, communication and happiness, lemon quartz is believed to help balance and strengthen these aspects.
The amethyst and quartz that creates lemon quartz comes primarily come from Brazil, although deposits of this type of lemon quartz amethyst have also been found in Arizona.
