6DG-9V2Quartz (Var: Amethyst) : SiO2

Monroe Canyon, Sevier Co., Utah, USA

Photograph size 11 cm by 10 cm by 11 cm. Longest crystal is 5.7 cm. Collected by self on 4/29/11. Specimen has been acid treated to expose crystals. All amethysts that I have collected in the Monroe area are where agate viens "bulge" to form vugs where they are formed. Most all are in solid calcite and need acid treatment to expose the amethysts.
