Amethyst with Quartz casts after Anhydrite
Frederico Westphalen
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
5.7 x 3.8 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $160


Elegant form of flower-like Amethyst from the amazing collection of Rock Currier (his label number 4990) . Perfect, 360 degree specimen with the fine esthetics that Rock was well-known for. He imported large quantities of Amethyst from this area and kept just a small but choice selection, of which this is one. The Quartz casts have the square cross section and are hollow as is typical of Anhydrite replacements. This is not exactly the typical form from here and that certainly helped make this a desirable piece for Rock.
