11.9 x 10.9 x 2.4 cm. A complete, spherical "flower" of amethyst from Brazil - a rosette lifted cleanly from the copper-rich matrix, leaving only a few dots of green on the back side. There are hundreds of tightly intergrown crystals here, with delicate blushes of purple on the ones towards the interior. It is flashy and lustrous, too.
