Item Description

Easily some of the most classic and recognizable Amethyst specimens around are those from around Veracruz. The best of these specimens are exemplary and highly sought by collectors. Here we have a gorgeous group of GEM / gemmy purple Amethyst crystals on matrix from Las Vigas. The largest crystal measures 1.7 cm long and shows textbook hexagonal prismatic form with classic glowing purple color and sharp glassy faces, but the most significan aspect of the piece is that it hosts a well-defined beautiful negative crystal inclusion - seldom seen in this material! Fine quality, no damage, showy, and the negative crystal makes it all the more enticing. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
