Description:Some of the finest Italian amethyst specimens have come from this well-known Sardinian quarry and this is a aesthetic small cabinet from the Allen Dillwith Collection of Texas. Pretty blush-purple, glassy, water-clear prisms, to 2.0 cm, are very attractively scattered on the sculptural quartz and calcite-lined vug in volcanic tuff matrix. The crystals are large for the locality and look like classic Las Vigas amethysts. Previously in the H.R. McBroom Collection.
