A very interesting and pretty amethyst crystal from Brandberg, Namibia. The vivid purple color saturation is very unusually concentrated vertically and the internal, enechelon, angled growth plates give a unique characterization to this very showy and glassy piece. And the weird, skeletal hole in one termination face sets this piece off. The base of this crystal is broken and healed, so technically, this is a doubly terminated crystal. The trivial cornerwear near the termination is a very minimal detraction to this unusual and showy Namibian amethyst from the Charlie Key dealer stock. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
