Comment: Over a dozed wonderful, sharp crystals with gemmy purple tips, to 2 cm, stick up in the center of the matrix on this large, beautiful Vera Cruz specimen. The isolation of the crystals adds to the appeal. The distinctive gemminess and isolation of the color in these crystals are what make Vera Cruz amethysts so prized. - ex. William Hiss collection.
