Quartz is the second most common mineral on earth, second only to feldspar. Quartz is very well-known in the world of gems because it has so many gemstone forms, including amethyst, adventurine, jasper, citrine, ametrine, smoky quartz, rose quartz and lemon quartz. Yellow quartz is attractive and durable, as well as inexpensive just like all varieties of quartz. Treated yellow quartz is usually traded as 'lemon quartz' whereas natural yellow quartz is usually traded as citrine. Both can be cut and carved in many forms and sizes.
Clean and sparkling, yellow quartz gemstones can be found in huge sizes, up to 150 carats and more! Buy yellow quartz gems online at wholesale prices from GemSelect.
It's pretty great having a whole lot of different gemstones to choose from. When doing crafts and jewelry making, it's great to have all kinds of options, and it's amazing how much cheaper it is to just purchase un-set gemstones and make the setting yourself, as opposed to buying fully-made jewelry already. It's also extra special since you made it yourself.
