Smoky Amethyst (scepter)
Diamond Hill, USA
Amethyst, Smoky Quartz
Diamond Hill , Ashaway, Hopkinton, Washington Co., Rhode Island, USA
A superb smoky amethyst scepter from Diamond Hill, in Ashaway, near Hopkington, in Washington Co., Rhode Island, USA! This famous and now-classic occurence was only rarely collected and produced some of the best smoky amethyst scepters in New England. This crystal is doubly-terminated and is overgrown with a nice gemmy amethsyt cap, with smoky zones. The cap itself doubly-terminated as well – this is known as open re-entry. Trivial edgewear along the cap, but no major damage. From my personal quartz collection.
