Amethyst fromBor Pit, Dalnegorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Russia
Size: 73x102x82 mm
Weight: 705 gr.
Amethyst is rare for Dal'negorsk deposits. These ones are very big, and it was a part of my fathers main collection.
The crystals are deep purple at the top, and more white in the bottom. There are also some smoky quartz, especially one vey nice smoky quart at the underside (seen on 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 for several occations.
