This specimen is a great small cabinet size piece consisting of super quality, sharp, gemmy, lustrous, prismatic, lavender "reverse" scepter and simple prisms of Amethyst measuring up to 2.0 cm sitting atop white/colorless, modified rhombohedra of Calcite on matrix. This piece is remarkable for Bolivia as it features a type of crystallization that is virtually unheard of for this country. This is one of the better pieces from the find for quality, aesthetics and overall appeal.
