Description

Very rare material from this famous locality, which is usually well known for smoky quartz, but not for amethyste! The crystals show a crazy habit, uncountable steps and sharp termination of all these steps, edegs and faces.The faces are lustrous and teh endpoints show a very good saturation. Both main crystals are developed as zepter, as you can see well on the images. Looks nice on my photography, but even more impressive in person. No significant damages to report and also backside is well crystalized.
