Quartz, var. Amethyst

Specimen # 100008
Mineral: Quartz, Var. Amethyst
Location: Piedra Parada, Mun de Tatatila, Veracruz, Mexico
Size: 7.4 x 5.4 x 6.9 cm


Brilliant cluster of bright, glassy transparent very light lilac amethyst crystals on matrix. The cluster measures 4.8 x 5.2 x 3.5 cm. The amethyst crystals contain minor microscopic inclusions of blood-red lepidocrocite. The base/underside of the matrix has been sawed flat so that the specimen displays well (there are no saw cuts anywhere else and the outline of the specimen is naturally irregular). This is a classy small cabinet display specimen.
