Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Steeple Rock District, Grant Co., New Mexico, USA
Toenail, 3.0 x 1.0 x 0.7 cm
The pictures really tell the whole story. This is a wonderful Amethyst scepter (doubly-terminated, no less!), that has fine color, excellent luster, and superb form. Quartz though it may be, it is still a highly attractive killer thumbnail. 3 x 1 x .7 cm
