A GIANT, amethyst/smoky quartz scepter from Brazil. This IMPRESSIVE, LARGE CABINET specimen is complete all-around. The amethyst scepter has very interesting, variable purple color zoning. All of the faces on this dramatic piece have differing amounts of eye-catching, stepped-growth and some of the termination faces have skeletal features. As you can see, the luster and translucence are excellent. This monster is very nearly pristine, with only very trivial, scattered edgewear despite its size. A super addtion to the species or locality collector. Ex Rolf Wein and Richard Hauck Collections. Valued at $2000.
