This is a great specimen of amethyst on matrix from a locality that often does not produce specimens on matrix. On one side of the matrix, there is a deep violet amethyst crystal that is doubly terminated. It shows areas of magenta coloration and flash. It has an unusual form of coalesced crystals. On the other side of the specimen is a single amethyst crystal with slight reverse scepter form. The crystals are well positioned, perched on nearly textbook microcline crystals matrix for an aesthetic and rare piece. There is a small amount of edgewear to the piece but overall, in great condition.
