Amethyst with Epidote
Thumbnail, 2.9 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm
Las Vigas, Veracruz, Mexico

A simply outstanding spray of classic Las Vigas, Veracruz Amethysts, with associated Epidote. The crystals are gemmy and lustrous, and the purple tips are exceptionally deep. It is 360 degrees complete, pristine, and has GLASS luster. The symmetry of the cluster is very good, with the largest crystal being about 2 cm. You would be hard pressed to find an equivalent thumbnail this good. Even better in person, I might actually go out and call this the single bet thumbnail sized example from here I have ever seen...it is spectacular and stylish. Most amethyst thumbnails just aren't.
