Wow! This is an outstandingly aesthetic, HUGE specimen of calcite crystals on amethyst from the classic Brazilian locality of Irai, in the Rio Grande do Sul region. The calcite crystals have a fascinating rocket-like morphology with elongated stems partially covered in drusy amethyst, and terminations which seem to shoot out of the amethyst matrix. While amethyst and calcite specimens from this prolific Brazilian locale are certainly not rare, large pieces with this level of quality and aesthetic perfection are quite unusual. This is a stunning piece of "natural art" for your home or office, as well as a fine collector specimen. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
