Here is a specimen of red cap amethyst that is a lovely example of this highly regarded formation, which features red quartz over purple-violet amethyst, which you can see on the back side of the piece. The crystals are well-formed and lustrous, and exhibit a deep blood red color. The red cap is the result of microscopic inclusions of hematite (iron) in the outermost layer, and the rich colors makes this a beautiful display specimen, and it comes from a classic locality. No damage.
