Exceptional cabinet plate featuring deep purple Amethyst crystals clustered atop matrix!
What a gorgeous specimen this is! The crystals are super gemmy and this allows the light to pass through the cluster, bringing out the deepest, richest Amethyst color imaginable, mixed with just a touch of orange along the back edge. This is probably the result of a small inclusion of Hematite. The Amethyst tips are complete and pristine, with the largest crystal measuring 8 cm in length. The Amethyst crystal at the upper right edge is actually doubly terminated. This is a tremendous specimen and it even sits on its own.
From the Goboboseb Mts, Brandberg Area, Erongo Region, Namibia.
Measures 10.2 cm by 10.4 cm by 8.6 cm in total size.
