This is one of the best Guerrero amethysts I have seen in any size. A single, large, intensely bi-colored, transparent amethyst crystal, to 4.5 cm in length, is girdled by a cluster of smaller amethyst crystals. From Colorado dealer, Dennis Beals, who handled this small pocket several years ago. 5.2 x 3.2 x 2.7 cm
