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 cluster that includes large crystals to 2.5" and several sceptered areas.  The color ranges from an intense purple to pale amethystine. This is an impressive, attractive and large crystal group from this one-time find in Africa.
