Description

One of these very rare, exceptional specimen, which show a greenish lower section and switch to amethyste color in the upper half. The specimen is sharp terminated and it is not just a single-crystal: at the base it is framed with several smaller crystals, which give a great visual impact to the piece. This is very unique stuff, the discovery is years ago and quantity was very limited. No new material can be expected - and field-collecting is prohibited in the whole region. The particular piece represents finest quality and is in great condition all around.
