Undamaged, attractive well crystallized mineral specimens are usually quite expensive, but there are a few exceptions. This find of Amethyst is one of them. Choice small Veracruz Amethyst cluster with fine color, clarity and form. One of the last great bargains in the mineral world.

Fat Jack Mine, Bradshaw Mountains, Yavapai County
Arizona, United States
5.2 x 2 x 1.4 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)

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.

Urals Region, Russia

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 District
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.
Amethyst phantom with Apophyllite crystals
stock #17.1-086
Goboboseb Mts., Brandberg area,
Erongo Region, Namibia
6 x 1.9 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Pre Holiday 2017

A fine and unusual Brandburg type amethyst crystal in perfect condition, with the very rare addition of Apophyllite crystals on some faces. Classic and esthetic, this is the best example I have seen of this uncommon association. The Apophyllite is gem clear and sharp, most are doubly terminated and all are very lustrous. In the Quartz, movable internal bubbles (enhydro) are a nice bonus. The Goboboseb region has produced lots of Amethysts but the quality, esthetics, condition and the Apophyllites make this one stand out from the crowd. Choice.
Quartz v. Amethyst -
stock #A 32-053
Karur District
Tamil Nadu, India
8 x 6.8 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1500
Pre Holiday 2017

An incredibly formed Quartz- a "mushroom cap" style Amethyst on a contrasting matrix (this is not a scepter but more like an umbrella). In outstanding condition with great form and color, this is a very rare habit, I have only seen one other specimen. The Karur diggings have occasionally produced some exotic Quartz and this is a great example of "exotic". Below the fringe line of the cap a few tiny single crystals some sceptered protrude like little fingers. Complex parallel and stacked crystals in radial form join at the peak of the cap in a crude termination of sorts. Even the matrix is unusual, a mix of small crystals of Calcite, Quartz, Albite, Clinoclore etc that is much like some Alpine matrixes. A very special addition for any fine Quartz suite.
Quartz v. Amethyst -Flower form
stock #17.1-294
Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
6.2 x 4.2 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

A very esthetic and unique flowerform Amethyst from the amazing discoveries at Tamil Nadu. At the top of the starburst or flower this has single larger petal or crystal that is wider and flatter but is also hoppered, skeletal and loaded with interesting inclusions. Undamaged and complete (which is rare for this habit) and with the deepest possible purple color this is a striking display piece. We have been quite active gathering the best of this location and this is a standout.
