Cerro de la Concordia, Piedra Parada, Veracruz, Mexico
These brilliantly glassy, lustrous crystals were found early last year in a new find at this old locality. The differ from previous finds in the high luster and unusually even lavender color, whereas most amethysts from this place show either uniform deeper purple hue or a gradient from purple to clear. This is a pristine, very attractive cluster and was one of the best of the lot. It has among the largest crystals of the find, as well. There is a contact on the left side, that is not damage but still an asymmetry that needs to be mentioned (and hence the price about half what I would otherwise feel OK to ask)
