Item Description

This specimen is a great small cabinet size piece consisting of good quality, sharp, gemmy, semi-lustrous, prismatic, purple color scepter, "reverse" scepter and simple prisms of Amethyst measuring up to 1.0 cm associated with 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 from this country.
