Piedra Parada, Mexico
Piedra Parada , Mun. de Tatatila, Veracruz, Mexico
An outstanding, gem amethyst cluster from Piedra Parada, Vera Cruz, Mexico! This specimen features two elongated, amethyst crystals that have grown together to form an X shape grouping. The amethyst has intense luster and clarity, and still retains good color. Some of the faces show a skeletal habit and there are some wonderful negative crystal inclusions within the amethyst. The specimen developed as a floater. All the crystals are doubly-terminated and the specimen is undamaged. Blake Barnett photo.
