Description

Thunder Bay Amethysts are among the most attractive Quartz specimens from North America. The contrast of the royal purple Amethyst with the stark red Hematite makes for some really attractive pieces.

This is a cluster of sharp, lustrous, gemmy purple Amethyst crystals with beautiful red to brownish-red tones from inclusions of circular Hematite.

Very attractive specimen from Armin Wendland colletion
