Description

Amethyst is rare for Dal'negorsk deposits. These ones are very big, and it was a part of my father's main collection.

The crystals are deep purple at the top, and more white at the bottom. There is also some smoky quartz, especially one very nice smoky quart at the underside (seen in the last picture)

The crystals are completely damage-free except along the edges of the specimen.

I am not sure when it was collected, but I assume about 20 years ago (or more) at the time when my father drove to Russia to trade minerals on several occasions.
