Amethyst on Calcite
Piedra Parada, Mexico
Piedra Parada , Mun. de Tatatila, Veracruz, Mexico
A fantastic, dark purple amethyst crystal on calcite from Piedra Parada, Vera Cruz, Mexico! This specimen has it all! Color, clarity, luster, association! A very fine miniature. The amethyst rests on a single calcite crystal. It’s very rare to find the amethyst on crystalized calcite. I was fortunate enough to get a batch of good ones recently. No significant damage.
