Description

From this classic Mexican locality, a very esthetic miniature group of well-terminated amethyst crystals with delicate purple color. Complete all around, with only minor peripheral bruises. 

Glued on a custom made base, this is a classic feature for the collection of B. Flurin (CH), which dates it back to the 50s-70s. Noteworthy, the purchase of non-Swiss specimens in Switzerland used to cost a small fortune back in the days! 

A display specimen in great conditions, with very minor visible peripheral dings or bruises. The locality reported on the label is Conception de Oro, but in my opinion this is wrong.
