Group of purple to colorless transparent quartz crystals on a matrix covered by contrasting small acicular green epidote. Overall size: 111mm x 91mm. Widest crystal: 14mm. Tallest crystal: 53mm. Weight: 297g. Since I stand against the use of varieties I much prefer not to name it amethyst. Simply quartz.
