Amethyst -scepter with Rutile inclusions
stock #19.1-855
Karur
Tamil Nadu,
3 x 2 x 1.3 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $340


A delicate slender scepter of well formed Amethyst rises from a cluster of smaller crystals. Very fine esthetics and good color in perfect condition. The scepter is included by red needles of Rutile best seen in the clear parts of the head. This specimen also has the rare hexagonal hole or negative crystal in the top of the termination, this is especially impressive with magnification. Despite the small size this has a strong visual impact and is especially choice on close examination.
Amethyst with Quartz casts after Anhydrite
stock #19.1-284-4990
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.
Amethyst- sceptered
stock #12.1-109
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.
Amethyst on Quartz -unusual scepters
stock #19.1-294
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
3.3 x 3.2 x 1.6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $280
Spring 2019

Two generations of Quartz with the later growth of Amethyst being unusual bent scepters. Excellent color and in fine condition the contrast with the white Quartz is excellent and the purple is nicely zoned, intense and lustrous. From the remarkable Amethyst discoveries in Karur, this has an especially delicate and eyecatching appeal but the real uniqueness is the unusual scepter form.

Fat Jack Mine, Bradshaw Mountains, Yavapai County
Arizona, United States
5.2 x 2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $700
Late Summer 2018

A very sharp, clear, light hued Amethyst scepter in flawless condition from the Fat Jack. Some wispy zoning is noted as is a multi stepping just below the head. We do not see many of these available and almost none with this clarity and undamaged condition. Outstanding, fine Arizona Amethyst.

Murzinka Mine,Sarapulka Dist., Sverdlovskaya Oblast, Middle Urals
Urals Region, Russia
2.7 x 2.2 x 1.9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $110
Late Summer 2018

A sharp scepter of zoned Amethyst from the Urals. There are what looks like two tiny stems on this crystal , but there is really just one with an ingrown second crystal. In very good condition, ex William Hladysz collection, a choice thumbnail from this classic locality.
Quartz- Amethyst Phantom
stock #18- AX-4-432
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
6.2 x 3.2 x 2.9 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $750
Worldwide mix summer

Gem clear and incredibly perfect, this is a stunning Goboboseb Amethyst that is far better in person. Goboboseb Quartz is world famous for its elegant form but exceptional pieces like this are actually very rare. In impeccable condition and with amazing inclusions this is from that tiny percentage that can be called superb. Sharp negative Quartz crystal inclusions and scepters are seen with magnification inside the lower part of the crystal as are small blood red blades of Hematite. One of the best we have handled, not large in size but quality.
Amethyst scepters included by Lepidocrocite
stock #18-AX-32-065
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
3 x 2.3 x .1 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $550
Spring update

Incredible form on this Indian specimen. A radiating burst of amethysts is the base for perfect scepters that are very slender, twisted and have lepidocrocite needles inside some tips with a red color. In pristine condition, no damage seen even with 10x magnification. from the amazing finds at Karur in Tamil Nadu, this level of perfection and esthetics is very very rare. Better in person this piece was selected from many hundreds of good pieces as on a quality level of its own.
