ID: CC20120
A gorgeous sceptred Amethyst Quartz from the Chiredzi mining district in Masvingo, Zimbabwe.  The double terminated Sceptre head is a complex mix of colourless (Rock Crystal) and purple (Amethyst) Quartz, itself draped over a milky-Quartz hexagonal prism.  The sceptre-head has great transparency, interrupted only by the density of tadpole-like wispy inclusions and micro-granular sulphides.  This delightful small miniature is mounted sub-vertically on a small colourless acrylic base.
