Calcite, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 5.3 x 4.9 cm
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
A really fine and aesthetic specimen from recent finds at Irai, Brazil. A beautiful, intergrown cluster of colorless calcite scalenohedrons is dramatically perched atop a pineapple cluster of amethyst crystals. This complete-all-around piece is nearly pristine.
