Calcite, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.9 x 8.7 x 6.8 cm
A striking and aesthetic combination specimen from Irai, Brazil. Gemmy and lustrous, amber calcite scalenohedrons richly and superbly cover the amethyst "ball." The two stunning, incredibly well-placed larger calcites, up to 3.0 cm long, have these amazing, second generation, colorless calcite "caps." This is truly a unique, dramatic and beautiful Irai amethyst and calcite specimen.
