A fine, very well defined amethyst flower with quartz replacing anhydrite from Brazil. Flattened formation of transparent, light purple amethyst quartz crystals with white quartz pseudomorphs after bladed anhydrite crystals (the anhydrite formed first, then was replaced by quartz). This features one large flower and one smaller one, with a nice amount of contrasting creamy white anhydrite replacements. Everything is in pristine condition with not one ding. Top example of a well defined amethyst flower. Excellent sized piece, very sturdy and displays very well. Hard to capture its true beauty, much better in person.
