Amethyst -scepters, tessins and reverse scepter crystals
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
4.8 x 2.5 x 1.5 CM (miniature)
price: $950
Winter 2016-17

A killer miniature with outstanding form. From the Karur area comes all sorts of unusual quartz and this is a very fine example. The fingers of Amethyst are reaching up from a pale crystalline base that adds a nice contrast. The deep purple amethyst crystals are in several habits most are also rather crooked and twisted. The whole effect is almost like a gothic cathedral. Very clearly not a typical Indian specimen!
