The Tonglushan mine in Hubei Province, China has produced some outstandingly aesthetic and unique examples of rare Japan-law twin purple amethyst crystals with a partial overgrowth or "crown" of hematite-tinged calcite crystals. This is a particularly fine example of this limited recent find, with sharp, lustrous calcite crystals covering just the right amount of a large purple Japan-law twinned amethyst crystal. The composition and balance is perfect and is keeping with Keith's strict aesthetic criteria for minerals that entered his collection. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
