Amethyst from Kingston Mtns., San Bernardino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c517a.jpg] Amethyst from Kingston Mtns., San Bernardino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c517b.jpg] Amethyst from Kingston Mtns., San Bernardino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c517c.jpg] Amethyst from Kingston Mtns., San Bernardino Co., California, USA [db_pics/pics/c517d.jpg]

Amethyst crystal cluster from the diggings in the Kingston Mountains of eastern California. Most Amethyst from this locality have alot of white Quartz over the purple or are only transluscent and of medium purple color. The very best (in my opinion) are of the style of this specimen, with clear transparent Quartz over deep purple Amethyst. Fine and undamaged.

Large, chunky Hematite crystal with an uncommon psuedocubic form. Great luster with parallel surface striations. This is an old specimen from a collection dating back to the 60s and 70s. It came without precise locality information, but I suspect it is from the Casa de Pedra mine in Congonhas, Minas Gerais. It's complete all around with some indentations from other crystals on top near the back, but remarkably pristine with only a couple small nicks. Even the bottom is rehealed. Weighs 2 pounds and 14 ounces!

This is a large cluster of nothing but Grossular garnet crystals. The crystals are an amber/yellow color and transluscent to transparent.
