Amethyst Scepter Thumbnail Specimen from Purple Hope Claim #4, Washington, USA

Regular price $130.00

This is an amethyst scepter thumbnail specimen from Purple Hope Claim #4, Green Ridge, King County, Washington. This specimen has an undamaged termination, a sidecar crystal growing on the side, and faintly visible phantoms within the translucent body of the main crystal which can be seen in the second picture. The color is bright despite its almost water-clear translucency, and the surface has a glassy luster. Amethyst is a form of quartz that gets its color from naturally irradiated iron ions, and has been a valued gem for decoration and collection since prehistoric times. Scepter specimens occur when a change in the growth habit happens during the crystal's formation.

This specimen is approximately 25mm x 22mm x 18mm. You will also receive a complimentary 'perky' display box and a label card with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
