Description

Found in 2017, this elegant miniature consists of a nicely colored milky quartz with a delicate and saturated amethyst tip, with a good purple-liliac color. In very good conditions and only minimal peripheral dings, those specimens are usually found digging in the forest, typically following the tree roots.

Oropa amethysts are definitely uncommon, and this pretty good specimen clearly encompasses both the rarity and the elegance of a sought-after specimen. 

Acquired at the end of the first Italian lockdown, it comes from a very small (and lucky!!) find.
