The amethyst from Kenya made a splash at the 2009 Tucson show, and has since disappeared, so the mine is probably closed.  AT the 2015 East Coast Show I found a dealer who had several boxes of this material, including some real beauties.  This one is a striking crystal that is doubly terminated overall, and includes smaller double terminations on the sceptered areas.  The color ranges from an intense purple to pale amethystine. The terminations are in good shape.  There are some uncrystallized areas on the side, which have been overgrown with jacare amethyst, and one side is partially coated with feldspar. This is an impressive, pretty and large crystal from this one-time find in Africa.
