Epidote, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Jinkouhe, Ebian Co., Leshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 7.4 x 2.7 cm
This find a little over a year ago (finished now) really stirred things up for awhile. Amethyst is not common from China, so miners were delighted to find these plates of lustrous, beautiful crystals with crystals of deep moss-green EPIDOTE sprinkled over them! This one has a beautiful balance of the little green epidotes with the purple amethyst as backdrop.
