Amethyst- sceptered
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
9 x 5.1 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $490


Gem clear scepters of very sharp and lustrous Amethyst are arranged in a ridge-like line on matrix. From the amazing finds at Karur in Tamil Nadu (Southern India) a few years ago, this is in perfect condition. The matrix has a vertically layered appearance and adds a good contrast. This deposit yielded several various types of Amethyst including some delicate and fine scepters like these. A few specimens still trickle out today but not of this sort. Choice.
