ID: CC2072
A fine Quartz Amethyst from the Zillertal valley in the Schwaz District of Austria. The main crystal measures 9.3 cm tall and displays a captivating Amethystine colour surrounded by gemmy colourless to translucent Quartz with a fine glassy lustre.  A hopper-like development is apparent to one side of the DauphinĂ© habit termination, whilst the prism faces display shallow ridge development.  To one side of the main crystal a similarly coloured Amethyst crystal protrudes at an angle outward.  Around the specimen’s base, pale green Chlorite occurs as embedded light peppermint green sucrosic druses.  This is most pleasing small cabinet specimen of mixed milky and lilac Amethyst Quartz from the Austrian Tyrol.
