Quartz v. Amethyst
Locality: Nova Scotia, Canada
Dimensions: 10.8 x 4.8 x 3.2 cm.
Amethyst crystals are not especially well-known from Canada's Maritime provinces, but this is a fine old-time example from Nova Scotia, with a handwritten 19th century label. From the collection of prominent Pennsylvania collector and businessman William W. Jefferis. A nice old Classic!
