Jaw-Dropping Amethyst Scepter from Zimbabwe. This listing is for an absolutely stunning amethyst quartz scepter from the Chibuku Mine in Zimababwe. The Chibuku mine in the Zambezi Valley is a relatively new locality (2 years old) which has been producing extremely fine examples of amethyst crystals.This piece has picture-perfect aesthetics with a dark purple, doubly terminated head on a white quartz stem. Red hematite stringers and dark smoky phantoms add to the interest of the piece. The quartz has excellent clarity and exceptionally glassy luster. The purples, reds and black colors are even more saturated in person than in they appear in the photos/videos.
This piece is among the best quality examples produced from this mine, I had a hard time not keeping this one for my personal collection. The tip of the scepter is contacted at the top, please see the listing video and photos. This small area of damage has been factored into the asking price for this piece. This scepter measures 8.0cm tall x 2.7cm wide x 2.3cm thick, 70 grams. Locality: Chibuku Mine, Chiredzi mining district (Hartley mining district), Masvingo, Zimbabwe.
