Tamil
Kakamunurle Mine, Karur District, Tamil Nadu, India

This is a very aesthetic 2.2 x 1.7 x 1.2 cm specimen from Karur. There are four perfect deep purple scepters on clear quartz stems. A fifth scepter is broken, but it is much less noticeable in person than in the highly magnified photo. I particularly like the way the crystal on the right grew so close to its neighbor without touching. The mine is a granite quarry, and it is worked for road rock with explosives, so it is hard to get perfect specimens.
