A druse of small Amethyst crystals rests on the calcite base of this large hand specimen. These crystals do not exceed 0.4" (1 cm) in length or 0.3" (8 mm) in diameter and are generally in good condition (a few of the more exposed crystals are broken). Their hexagonal prismatic form is very good, and some are definitely doubly-terminated. Their color is rather interesting- all visible prism lengths are milky-white in color, and violet coloration begins at the base of each termination. All are translucent and have a dull pearly-to-waxy luster. The calcite base is semicrystalline, showing a small amount of actual form.
