Vera Cruz, Mexico


Overall size 10.2 x 7.0 x 5.5 cm. Delicate group of sharply defined amethyst and colorless quartz crystals on matrix. The amethyst crystals with higher transparency and stronger color saturation towards the terminations. From the Las Vigas mine. With custom lucite base.


While Silicon Oxide (SiO2) or quartz may be the second most common mineral present in the Earth’s crust, many rare and unusual varieties offer opportunities for collectors. From the royal purple and golden hues of amethyst and citrine, to the intense turquoise and apple green of chrysocolla and chrysoprase, quartz has an incredible spectrum of available colors. Rare and unusual crystal forms such as scepters, gwindels, faden, elestial and “spirit” quartzes create incredibly diverse aesthetics to enjoy. As a prime component within many of the great crystalline environments, quartz is also a frequent partner to and basis for other mineral growth. Classic combinations like smoky quartz and amazonite, fluorite on quartz, and spessartine garnet on smoky quartz offer fantastic contrasts of color and form.

In good condition.
