What an elegant Las Vigas amethyst! Most are small crystals shooting up from matrix, or loose clusters of fatter crystals, but this particular piece strikes me for the geometry, and the aerial perch of the large doubly-terminated crystal right in the middle of the cluster. I think you could spend much more money for a much less interesting example from this locality, that doesn't stand out nearly as much from the crowd as this one. No damage to that large crossbar crystal!
