Item Description

A great small cabinet size specimen featuring great quality, sharp, gemmy, lustrous, prismatic, purple color "reverse" scepter crystals of Amethyst measuring up to 1.7 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 finest pieces from the find for aesthetics, wealth of crystals and overall appeal. Valued at $700 for the uniqueness and quality.
