Anybody know about yellow and green bi-color natural quartz? I saw two examples. They had natural inclusions. The only examples on the internet were on etsy.com. If it weren't for the inclusions I would suspect they were synthetic.

Attached is a photo(I hope the photo shows well)
Thanks

Right off the bat, ur describing Ametrine, the colors are about right, in quartz, usually very clean & good for jewelry-m76steve... 8)

Ametrine is purple and yellow, no?

I have never seen naturally occurring green and yellow quartz, although it is a common synthetic.

Luccini described producing green/black bicolors with heat and radiation, but not green/yellow. It's the sort of thing that is conceivably natural but seems more likely to have a synthetic origin. How did you determine that the inclusions were natural? Synthetic quartz can have inclusions as well.

Thank you for the replies. Thanks to the administrator for the parcel photo. As far as what I saw as inclusions. Hard of course to describe but they were dark crystals. Next time I will take a macro with my micro.

This is treated at a minimum and almost guaranteedly synthetic. That color of green doesn't occur ns
aturally in quartz, and neither does that color of yellow.
