Item Description

A great small cabinet size specimen featuring wonderful quality, sharp, gemmy, lustrous, prismatic, purple color crystals of Amethyst measuring up to 2.5 cm sitting atop gemmy, lustrous, sharp scalenohedra of Calcite with underlain "Chlorite" on matrix. This piece is remarkable for Bolivia as it features a type of crystallization that is virtually unheard of from any mine down there. Please note that this is one of the finest pieces from the find for aesthetics, quality of crystals and overall appeal.
