This piece is a highly aesthetic specimen of sharp, flashy and brilliantly lustrous red cap amethyst - purple amethyst crystals covered with red due to microscopic inclusions of hematite (iron) in the outermost layer. The hematite layer colors the amethyst a dark red, while the amethyst below the caps (seen on the edges) is a lovely royal purple. There is no damage on this superb specimen from what is arguably the premiere locality for this material - the Diamond Willow Mine.
