Item Description

Striking clusters of pretty, pastel-purple, lightly frosted, lustrous and translucent amethyst crystals are very aesthetically scattered on the CABINET matrix plate covered with brilliant, brass-yellow, striated, pyrite pyritohedrons and iridescent, brassy, marcasite crystals. The amethyst crystals reach 5.0 cm - rare for this locality. This is a pristine, classic and beautiful, large combination specimen from the famous mines at Cavnic, Romania.
