Epidote on Quartz var. Amethyst (Super Seven)
Dimension: 6cm x 4cm x 3.4cm
Locality: Jinkouhe, Ebian Co., Leshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
This find was at least over three years ago (finished now) really stirred things up for a while. Amethyst is not common from China, so miners were delighted to find these plates of lustrous, beautiful crystals with bright moss-green Epidote crystals sprinkled over the Amethyst crystal cluster (also commercially called "Super Seven"). This one has a beautiful balance of the little green epidotes with the purple amethyst as backdrop.
