Item Description

The Little Giant Basin in San Juan County has produced some very attractive Quartz specimens, including fine skeletal and scepter Amethyst specimens. This piece is an excellent, very gemmy, sharp, lustrous, purple color, scepter crystal that is complete on all sides. The piece is virtually undamaged, save the bottom where it detached from the pocket. This particular piece was collected by noted San Juan collector, Robert Stouffer in September of 1996, and is a great example of the type of specimens that can be found in the Little Giant Basin.
