Here is a delightful, impressively aesthetic specimen of AMETHYST from the classic Las Vigas locality in Vera Cruz, Mexico. Many people argue that the amethsyt from this area is the most beautiful crystallized amethyst in the world). This specimen features see-through, gem quartz crystals with tips that are colored a sparkling royal purple hue. Specimens from the Las Vigas area all but disappeared from the mineral market for many years, but recent mining there has begun to turn up a trickle of top-quality specimens like this one. We selected this and a few other very choice pieces from a small lot brought to the East Coast Show by an Arizona wholesale mineral dealer who recently paid a visit to Las Vigas in search of fine mienral specimens, and was offering them for sale.
