8.3 x 6.5 x 5.4 cm. A fine, old-time cluster of glassy and transparent amethyst crystals with pleasing variable purple color intensity from a classic South Carolina locality - Due West. The dramatic, compound, doubly terminated crystal is 8.0 x 3.3 cm and has fabulous, deep purple tips. The small bed of milky quartz crsytals is a very nice accent. The purple color variations are really highlighted in the photo. Ex. George Feist Collection.
