Description

Perfectly crystallized amethyst scepter on bright smoky quartz. The amethyst has a nicely distinct head with intense color (espceially with backlit). It clearly distinguishes itself from the bright smoky quartz in shape and color. The faces demonstrate a varied structure in certain areas and are glossy to matt. This specimen was found at a road construction close to Barcelona a few years ago. Also healed and crystallized on the backside – an undamaged floater piece from a unique and nonrecurring find.
