Quartz (var. Amethyst) on smoky Quartz (Ref: RG1397)

Washington Camp-Duquesne, Santa Cruz Co., Arizona, USA
145mm x 86mm x 60mm
minID: 4N1-AJU
A sharply-crystallized doubly-terminated cluster of translucent purple Amethyst with darker-purple zoning is hosted on a large (145 x 60 x 54 mm) lightly-smoky, translucent Quartz point, which is included with pale-green Chlorite. The large smoky Quartz is somewhat distorted, and is highly recrystallized. The Amethyst is in perfect condition, except for a contact on the reverse, has nice luster, and consists of many doubly-terminated crystals, intergrown in a parallel orientation. Collected in about 1980, this exceptional specimen is from a small pocket which produced only 3 of these specimens. I have seen much Quartz from at this Arizona locality, but nothing like this piece.

Sorry. This specimen has been sold. Please view alternatives below.
