I'm a new member but, I'm a lapadarist in western NC next door to the gemstome capitol of the world. You could have a metiorite or hematite, not citrine. Where do you live? It looks like you have some agate. Here in NC the garnets will turn feldspar,quartz a redishis tint. It take diffrent elements to give stones color. Iron/reed magness/green etc. Yellow stone looks like a weathered piece of quartz. Today we was looking for gold and I was cleaning out a crevice in solid bedrock and low and behold out came a weatherd dime solid orange 1947! Iron in the stream. Hope this helps
