HUGE Jackson\'s Crossroads, GA DT Deep Purple Amethyst!
This specimen is not for sale, and was archived from an external source for the purpose of preserving and sharing its geologic, geographic, and collector value.
Description:  Amazing Double Terminated Amethyst!

Jackson's Crossroads, GA, USA

3 1/2 x 3 x 2 inches, 330 grams - HUGE for the locale!

This is a classic piece from a mine that has produced some of the finest amethyst in North America. The crystal is saturated with beautiful blue-purple grape jelly color on both ends with some paler quartz in the center for contrast. Some self-healing has occurred on the back side, creating an almost "elestial" look. It is rare both in size and quality, a true American gem at an incredible price!


I have been collecting for about 25 years, and I'm back to release some lovely pieces from my collection. I am not a geologist, but I will share what I know of the age and origin of specimens. All items come from reputable mineral dealers and auctions from all over the U.S.. I have chosen minerals for their rarity and beauty and know that you will be satisfied with your purchase. No returns, please, unless I have grossly misrepresented an item. Most pictures were taken with natural sunlight.
