Amethyst on Glauberite casts -Classic locale (Ref: AX-10-794)

Setz Quarry, Idar Obersein , Hunsruck, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
73mm x 67mm x 42mm
minID: 4R1-787
From the Idar Oberstien area that is famed for its Basalt flow minerals most notably fine Agates. This is a delicate and sharply formed replacment of a flowerlike spray of Glauberite bladed crystals enclosing a vug. All the Glauberite are now replaced by Quartz with the inner part showing a zone of Amethyst fingers. Some fingers show the hollow void where the Glauberite crystals had been. An older specimen ex Ruth Palmer and William Hladysz collections. This is a bit similar to some New Jersey (USA) casts often seen with Prehnite replacing Anhydrite.
