Glassy and gemmy light purple amethyst crystals, to nearly 4 cm in length, festoon both sides of their matrix. A thin septum of sparkling crystallized drusy quartz forms the matrix of this interesting amethyst specimen. Stunning for contrast and geometry, this is a highly unusual association that came out only in a small pocket, in around 2015-2016. Sparkly and just pretty. It is not the deepest color or biggest crystals, but the style and contrast is unique.
