Description

From this classic Russian locality, a very aesthetic group of double terminated amethyst with delicate purple color. Quartz crystals are very lustrous and with great transparency, beautifully contrasting with the matrix. A few stepped growth patterns are visible in the prism, cross cutting the main elongation axis. Upon close inspection, a delicate glasuhr structure can be observed within the main amethyst crystal. A few minor bruises alongside the quartz crystals, to be expected on these classic specimens.

A real Russian classic. From the former Bernardoni collection (Italy).
