Quartz (variety amethyst).
JA13E5: Quartz (variety amethyst)
This elegant specimen appealed to me because of its nice color hints. With thin matrix on which the, sometimes doubly terminated, crystals of amethyst grow.
Piedra Parada (Las Vigas), Municipio Tatatila, Veracruz (Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave)  Mexico (±1979)
Specimen size: 2.9 × 2.7 × 1.4 cm = 1.1” × 1.1” × 0.6”

Price: [SOLD]
Quartz (variety amethyst).
FK46K0: Quartz (variety amethyst)

Price: [SOLD]
Quartz (variety amethyst).

Price: [SOLD]
Quartz (variety amethyst).
RC99P8: Quartz (variety amethyst)
Probably this is one of the first amethyst samples from Las Vigas because the original label indicates that it was acquired in Tucson in 1968 and (erroneously) 'Guerrero' as the locality. It is a very aerial group of crystals, some of them doubly terminated, with a very well marked color zoning. Luster and transparency are excellent.

Quartz (variety amethyst) and Epidote.
TD13J5: Quartz (variety amethyst) and Epidote
Magnificent crystal, very well defined and bright with an esthetic graded change of color clearer at the base and deeper on the termination with zoning. An important aspect is that it is on matrix, which is very rare with samples from this region.
