Here is a great Quart var. Smoky / Amethyst specimen. This large cabinet specimen come from Hallelujah Junction, Petersen Mountain, Nevada .

This specimen comes from an old collection.

This specimen has good form and color for any locality, but especially attractive for a U.S. specimen of this type. This specimen consists of  large, sharp, well formed, partially skeletal crystals with defined smoky and purple Amethyst bi color zoning and shows sceptering. It has a large gemmy area of wonderful purple amethyst. The specimen overall has great luster, with a few frosted terminated faces. For the most part, the majority of the crystal is completely crystallized, but it does have some roughness on the back and bottom of the specimen. There is one chip on the top termination above the amethyst zone, but does not distract from the overall look and quality of this specimen. Just below the amethyst zone, it looks like the crystal is damaged, but it is not. This is an area of flaws within the crystal.

Overall an amazing specimen from this locality.

This beauty measures approx. 14.3 cm  x 13.0 cm x 8.4 cm. It weighs just over 3 pounds.
