Amethyst and Smoky Quarrz
Moosup, Connecticut

This small hand specimen of is from a recent find in Connecticut. There were many loose crystals found, but relatively few matrix pieces. I was fortunate enough to get one of the first picks from the diggers, and bought two nice specimens. This piece measures 4 x 5.5 x 5.5 cm, and the largest amethyst is about 1.8 cm tall. I picked this one because it was as close to perfect as I could find. It is also very aesthetic as the lustrous large amethysts are ringed by smaller smokies. It could be trimmed by sawing the bottom, but I chose to leave it as found so its future owner could make a decision on exactly how it should be displayed.
