Quartz (variety amethyst).
FG90: Quartz (variety amethyst)
Amatitlan gave the largest doubly terminated Amethyst crystals in the world. Unfortunately most of them were damaged with broken or significant dings at the top of the crystals. Just a few specimen were saved in good shape. Again, Martín was in the right place at the right time and luckily he got a very esthetic one without significant damage. Plus this specimen has two main doubly terminated crystals joined by other smaller crystals. As you can see in the photo the specimen looks great!

MF50AA9: Quartz (variety amethyst)
Two parallel stalactitic growths of very sharp and bright crystals, with a very intense, deep and uniform color, that are on a base of white chalcedony. The sample is from a recent find in a new quarry at the locality.

MB93AA9: Quartz (variety amethyst)
Perimorph growth of very sharp and bright crystals with a very deep violet color, very rich with oxide inclusions and with recrystallized hematoid Quartz microcrystals on the edges.

Quartz (variety amethyst).
MB99I0: Quartz (variety amethyst)
The quality of its color is extraordinary. Crystals have different intensities of color on the prism and the rhombohedron, it is more intense on the terminations. The group is a stalagmite which once covered a hexagonal crystal of Calcite, now gone, but it left a mold in the center of the specimen. We note the precision of the quarry’s name, until now very difficult to determine on Uruguayan specimen.
The specimen has been reviewed, photographed and published as a new discovery in the magazine ‘Mineral Up’ on page 54 in number 2007/1.

Parallel growth of amethyst crystals, with a second generation of small Quartz crystals, some of them doubly terminated, which grew perpendicular to the specimen main axis.

The most notable thing about these crystals is the way the rhombohedral faces of the termination are much larger than the prism faces. The color is intense and the coloring is not evenly distributed within the crystals. The rear has re-crystallized.

Sharp crystal with a deep color on a small matrix of Epidote, but the highlight of this specimen are the series of phantoms close to the top of the specimen. It is as good as it looks (or maybe even better)
Piedra Parada (Las Vigas), Municipio Tatatila, Veracruz (Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave)  Mexico
Specimen size: 6 × 3 cm = 2.4” × 1.2”

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) "phantom".
TF30L3: Quartz (variety amethyst) "phantom"
From a locality not yet well known by mineral collectors, the crystal presents a very curious flattened morphology, where two parallel prism faces have virtually disappeared. We would like to call your attention on the extraordinary transparency and the attractive distribution of intense violet cloudy forms inside the specimen.

Price: [SOLD]
Quartz (variety amethyst) "phantom".
