Weight: 56g

An outstanding specimen featuring a cluster of Amethyst on micro-Quartz crystals from a very limited one-time find in the famous Fengjiashan Mine, Daye Co., Hubei, China.  A group of perfectly terminated, lustrous spray of Quartz var. Amethyst grown on a plate of very scuptural and sparkly micro-Quartz crystals.  Amethyst from this locale is extremely rare and the first piece of this kind started to emerge in the market in around 2010 was sold out in no time.  Arsenopyrite and Chalcopyrite crystals sparsely scattered on the Quartz plate adding uniqueness to the piece.  The floating Baryte in peachy orange color grown on the side is so eye catching, this truly is a winning piece for connoisseur mineral collectors!
