Capurru Quarry, near Osilo, Sassari Province, Sardinia, Italy
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.0 x 4.2 cm
Sharp crystals with the utterly brilliant luster and internal sparkle that seem to characterise this find. The largest crystal is 1.7 cm and doubly-terminated. This is among the larger of the find, and there is much color on this small matrix specimen...the crystals are the deeper hue to come from the find, it seems. 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."
