Mineral Specimen #4835 Calcite on Amethyst
9.8 x 9 x 4.7 cm
A hemispherical mound of lilac purple colored Amethyst crystals from the very old silver mining district of Guanajuato. There are pearlescent off white colored Calcite crystals perched on many of the Amethyst crystals. The color of the Amethyst is the darkest in the terminations which exhibit phantoms. The bottom matrix pf the specimen is massive, milky Quartz.
Flaws: There are two broken Amethyst crystals, one near the middle of the specimen and the other near one of the edges which are difficult to see in the pictures and not very noticeable in person.
