Many collectors and dealers contend that the AMETHYST from the Piedra Parada locality in Veracruz, Mexico (incorrectly identified for decades as Las Vigas) is the most beautiful crystallized amethyst in the world. Actually, it's hard to dispute this considering the beauty of the highly aesthetic, gem clear spiky clusters of amethyst that are found there. Specimens from this classic locality all but disappeared from the mineral market for many years, but recent mining apparently met with some rather spectacular success. At the East Coast Gem Rock & Mienral Show, one of the wholesale dealers who specializes in Mexican minerals had just returned with a good selection of top-quality specimens from a large pocket that was opened just a few months before the show. We selected some of the most choice pieces from the lot he brought to sell.
