Quartz, var. Amethyst

Specimen # 200060
Mineral: Quartz, var. Amethyst
Location: Diamond Willow Mine, McTavish Twp., Thunder Bay District, Ontario, Canada
Size: 7.1 x 5.4 x 3.5 cm
Price: $200.00 CAD

Quantity:

A cluster of sharp amethyst crystals from the classic Thunder Bay District locality, the Diamond Willow Mine. The crystals have good lustre and show strong zoning along the edges, which one does see from the district but is not particularly common from the Diamond Willow. In very good condition, with small chips at the tips of four crystals. John acquired this specimen from Rod and Helen Tyson and their label is included with it. Stands perfectly for display as photographed, a really nice piece.
