AMAZING GEMMY RICHLY COLORED AMETHYST SCEPTER on QUARTZ Washington TF207
QUARTZ (variety: " AMETHYST ") (excellent, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, rich purple color scepter crystal) on QUARTZ with gorgeous red inclusions of LEPIDOCROCITE / HEMATITE. An excellent, sharp, lustrous, well-formed, gemmy, rich purple colored AMETHYST scepter on white QUARTZ from the classic locality at Denny Mountain. The termination is notably gemmy and strong in color, especially for the size, but if you look closely, you will see it's included with small acicular crystals of bright red Lepidocrocite / Hematite creating the beautiful "Strawberry Quartz" effect that is known from this area. This locality has produced some of the best scepter crystals from the United States, and has actually cost some collectors their lives because the terrain is so treacherous and deadly.
The piece is complete all the way around, with only minor areas of incomplete growth of the back, and stands out as a superb small miniature sized specimen of this classic material. Locality : Denny Mountain, King County, Washington. Specimen Size : 3.6 x 1.1 x 0.9 cm.
