Description

Amethystine quartz specimens from Irai are known as "flowers" for an obvious reason: they have a cupped in a bloom shape.  

The color is very light pastel lavender. The crystals grow outward from a central point to form the background of a darker violet amthyste crystal cluster.

Very attractive and large specimen from Armin Wendland collection
