RO-070: Quartz (variety Amethyst) - $225
IraĆ­, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Large cabinet - 19.5 x 14 x 5 cm (7.7 x 5.5 x 2.0 inches)
470 grams (1.04 pounds)
Specimen status: Available     Send an email to order

A classic IraĆ­ amethyst 'flower' specimen composed completely of nearly colorless to light purple, translucent amethyst crystals, with individual crystals reaching at last 2 cm. The 'flower' designation comes from a radial growth pattern of the quartz crystals, some of which can be seen here. A nice display example which is even nicer when displayed with back lighting. Except for the usual edge and back issues -- which are very minimal here -- no damage.
