Description:An exceptional, aesthetic and sculptural amethyst scepter from Brandberg and the Charlie Key Collection. The pretty purple amethyst crystal stalk is enclosed by a dramatic large scepter. The impressive water-clear, colorless, very glassy scepter has striking offset frosted termination faces and fantastic stepped-growth prism faces. Complete all-around and pristine. A couple of termination faces are partially lightly contacted, but there is no damage, per se. Every turn presents a strikingly different perspective to this outstanding 360-degree cutie. The amethyst imparts a perceived smoky tint to the colorless gem scepter. Difficult to photograph due to the high lustre and glassy gemminess. Valued at $500. A Brandberg classic. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
