South Gyeongsang Province,
3.1 x 2.3 x 1.8 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
new year 2021
Zoned Amethyst scepter with a darker purple tip. The shaft is partly hidden from some angles but it is a darker smoky Quartz. From Eonyang in South Korea, Ex John Buckley collection which he had obtained from Pat Barker who once had spent some years living in and collecting the minerals of Korea. Minor chipping is noted that is almost impossible to see without magnification, This is in much better condition than typical. Just a hair too large to be a thumbnail, but could be trimmed to meet the standard if desired.
