The citrine cathedral geode 1 is an especially beautiful high-quality geode full of sparkling amber to gold-colored crystals.
In nature, Citrine is rare because of the extreme conditions needed for the process to occur but can happen in veins of Amethyst that are under heat and pressure. Therefore, most citrine is lab produced by heating Amethyst crystals at high temperatures.
The geode was mined and processed in Brazil. To create the cathedral shape, the miners cut the geode in half and polished the face, giving it its smooth glass mirror-like finish accentuating its already stunting appearance. They then add cement to the base, back, and sides to protect and add stability to the beautiful gold-colored citrine crystals inside. The process also forms a base for the cathedrals to stand on its end. Finely they finish the citrine cathedral geode 1 by painting the exterior black to match the actual volcanic stone where the geode was found.
