Calcite, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Cabinet, 10.9 x 6.6 x 6.5 cm
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
A frosty, creamy calcite crystal measuring 5.5 x 4 cm, sits on a bed of gemmy amethyst crystals - a really pretty setting! Smaller crystals surround it. Irai continues to produce batches of beautiful specimens of calcite and amethyst of different forms from time to time, sometimes in combination such as you have here.
