Vera Cruz Mexican Amethyst Clusters
Here is another interesting collection we picked up last month.
There were sixteen pieces total to this collection. A gentleman inherited it and had it for quite a few years before deciding to part with them.
The top crystal here is double terminated.
There was a little consternation as to their origin. One person said it was from Red River and that you can't find them anymore there. Others said they were from South America. Finally I had to consult our local Crystal expert. He said they are from Vera Cruz Mexico and that it is an old collection. We did a comparison of Amethyst crystals from that area and they do appear to be similar. He immediately bought the largest cluster and one or two smaller ones.
They are indeed beautiful crystals; wherever they're from
And two pairs of siamese twins.
my favorite is a single point we a water bubble in it. The bubble is so tiny that even the stereoscope can't catch it distinguishably. With a loupe you can see the movement as you turn it if you know where to look.
It's in my personal collection.
