Sold Specimen Number: 1213-11 Browse All Specimens
Several mines near Thunder Bay, Ontario have long been famous for spectacular amethyst clusters, and in the past couple of years we’ve been fortunate enough to acquire some of the best lots ever. The luster is fantastic and the range of colors from red to brown to deep purple is fascinating. Even the non-purple quartz crystals are typically labeled “amethyst” from this location because they are almost always purple beneath the different colored surface layers.

With just the right mix of red and purple, this is a classic Thunder Bay piece.
