Amethyst - radiating cluster
stock #17.1 099
Cerro de Concordia, Piedra Parada
Veracruz, Mexico
5.1 x 5 x 2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $190
Late Summer 2021

Flawless, gemmy and highly lustrous, a simple cluster of Veracruz Amethyst formed by doubly terminated crystals. In exceptional condition there are a few small bits of adhering matrix but overall this is just Amethyst. This locality is unique in the world for look and quality of the Amethyst. These represent a great value in the mineral world. The arrangement of these crystals in a star cluster is also a hallmark of the Piedra Parada zone. It is almost impossible to appreciate fully the glass-like nature of this specimen in photos.

stock #17.1-101
Cerro de Concordia, Piedra Parada
Veracruz, Mexico
9.4 x 7 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $1450

A flowerlike arrangement of large, gem clear and perfectly undamaged crystals perched on matrix. The two largest crystals are sceptered, though that is best seen on the backside of this piece. The best specimens in this more recent find (2017) were sculptural and had great color, luster and form, somewhat differnt from previous discoveries in this zone yet still recognizable as clearly from Veracruz. This is such a recent piece, flawless and the overall esthetics are top percentile. The matrix has a nice dusting of drusy colorless Quartz on the front side which makes a nice contrast with the Amethyst.
