Item Description

The purple color saturation and intensity is top of the line on this aesthetic amethyst plate from the famous deposits at Thunder Bay, Canada. The crystals are highly lustrous and translucent and the hematite "freckles" are really a cute accent to this outstanding small cabinet specimen. Very nearly pristine, the infinitesimal termination wear on a couple of crystals is barely noticeable and is certainly not a detraction. The backlit photo highlights the super purple color saturation and the nifty hematite "freckles".
