Karur
Tamil Nadu, India
5.7 x 4.9 x 1.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
new year 2021

A radiating circular spray of Amethyst crystals that forms a flower-like form. These flowers or suns, as they are also called, are well-known from Irai in Brazil but less well-known from Tamil Nadu in India. The Indian examples often have richer color and brighter luster, but are smaller than the Brazilian pieces. This is a choice Indian piece with excellent form, vivid color and luster, in excellent condition. Very close examination will reveal that many of the crystals a included with tiny needle crystals of golden and red color Rutile. These are still sometimes found in small quantities but the best were found in 2012, this piece is from that period.
