Capurru Quarry, near Osilo, Sassari Province, Sardinia, Italy
Cabinet, 9.7 x 4.8 x 4.4 cm
Sharp crystals with the utterly brilliant luster and internal sparkle that seem to characterise this find. The largest crystal is 1.7 cm. One doubly-terminated crystal is just over 1 cm. Beautiful amethyst from an unusual locality, found May 2008. They are all from what the collectors (Luca and Fabrizio Ferrero) called "the labour day pocket."
