- Fieschergletcher, Bieligental, Gons, Wallis, Switzerland
- Large Cabinet, 17.1 x 11.6 x 7.2 cm
Highlighted by a 13 cm long crystal, this amethyst specimen is lustrous and translucent, with purple sections. A rare color from the alpine veins of the Alps, where amethyst is somehow very rarely seen amidst so much clear and smoky quartz. This is a large piece, at 980 grams and nearly a kilo therefore. It is difficult to convey the subtleties of color and shape, and we would be happy to send a video on request.
