Amethyst Scepter With Inclusions
Cabinet, 13.5 x 11.8 x 11.5 cm
Onyong-Myon, Korea
A complete-all-around scepter with the sscepter termination so overly developed it has grown around and out on all sides and down over the stalk that remains. It is remarkable for the size in its good condition and completeness. It displays well all around. The inclusions within (rutile?) give it a sparkling, shimmering, asterated surface effect that is like nothing I have seen from Korea before and more like the classic old "strawberry quartz" from Mexico. A beautiful specimen from ANY locality, but for Korea...just incredible?!
