Description

A fine scepter amethyst from this productive Malagasy locality. I used to collect amethyst scepters in Zillertal, which have always amazed me with their electric purple color. These are now scarce. But it always fun to find them from other localities. The amethyst cap on this specimen overhangs the white quartz stem. The coloration of the scepter is more intense on the rhombohedral faces while the prism sections are colorless. Brazil twinning is seen by cross-hatched vicinal figures on the rhombohedral terminations. A nice thumbnail specimen mounted on acrylic stand for display.
