You now have Citrine - pale yellowish colour.
Green Amethyst is sometime called Amergreen or Green Citrine

The green variety of transparent quartz is called prasiolite and is the result of heating some varieties of amethyst. It is a yellow-green colour.
The "green amethyst" on the market presently is mined as a colourless quartz, irradiated and heated, and some of it goes a mint green colour.
Some of these will develop purple patches or bands if exposed to bright sunlight. (may appear brown)
Ahh, but what is the actual heating process? I have roughly 1800 year old translations of what are effectively workshop aide-memoires, and they talk about turning certain crystals into "emeralds", the more to fool people or make nice jewellery, so the question is, what is the heating cycle?
So what has Guthrie made? Prasiolite or Green Amethyst?
Have you any knowledge of Chrysoprase being purple with gold flecks?
