Description:This specimen is a great miniature size piece consisting of fine quality, sharp, gemmy, lustrous, prismatic, purple color "reverse" scepter habit crystals of Amethyst measuring up to 8 mm associated with white/colorless, modified rhombohedra of Calcite on matrix. This piece is remarkable for Bolivia as it features a type of crystallization that is virtually unheard of from this country, AND the fact that such a common species like Calcite is virtually unheard of from Bolivia. Bombori has certainly produced the best Calcites from Bolivia extant. This is one of the better pieces in this size range for quality, aesthetics and overall appeal that I've offered recently.
