Star Lemon Quartz
Star lemon quartz is a lemon-yellow variety of transparent quartz which exhibits a rare and desirable asterism (star effect). It is closely related to citrine quartz, but it is more lemon yellow in color, whereas citrine tends to have heavier orange tones. Most lemon quartz is heated or enhanced to obtain a brilliant, yellow color. The most significant sources include Brazil and Africa, where very gem quality large crystals are found, often producing huge gemstones weighing over 150 carats. Since the color yellow is associated with clarity, happiness and communication, star lemon quartz is thought to bring balance and positive energy to its wearer. Like all quartz, star lemon quartz is considered very durable and suitable for all types of jewelry.
