Item Description

A great miniature size specimen featuring excellent quality, doubly-terminated, sharp, gemmy, lustrous, prismatic, purple color "reverse" scepter crystals and simple prisms of Amethyst measuring up to 2.5 cm sitting atop grey 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 any mine down there. Please note that this is one of the best pieces from the find for aesthetics and overall appeal. Valued at $700 for the uniqueness and quality.
