Specimen size: 6 × 3 cm = 2.36” × 1.18”

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.

An extraordinary formation of amethyst crystals that covers completely a scalenohedral crystal of Calcite, preserving its original form. Color and luster are magnificent.
