Calcite, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Cabinet, 13.1 x 8.3 x 4.8 cm
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
A calcite crystal, complete and undamaged, of bizarre form, on a bed of lustrous purple amethyst. The calcite is a compound crystal of cubic forms, with a pleasing, translucent honey color. It is really stark and striking sitting there against the amethyst backdrop! A large and showy specimen!
