The top surface of this specimen of red cap amethyst is colored a vivid blood red color by inclusions of hematite (iron) inside the quartz, while the sides and back are a lavender purple amethyst. This explains the "red cap" name for this formation, for which the Thunder Bay area is famous. The crystals on this superb specimen are up to 1.3", which is large for the locality, and display flashy, brilliant luster on all surfaces. There is no distracting damage.
