Quartz, var. Amethyst

Specimen # 201022
Mineral: Quartz, var. Amethyst
Location: Capurru Quarry, Osilo, Sassari, Sardinia, Italy
Size: 7.0 x 6.4 x 4.2 cm


Beautiful amethyst crystals on calcite from Osilo. These crystals are sharp, lustrous and transparent. Some show a reverse-sceptre habit. They have very good colour, contrasting beautifully with the pale green calcite crystals upon which they are perched. In excellent condition, a very fine Italian amethyst from the John White collection.
