For sale is a very nice and rare today of ametrine crystal from Bolivia. This is an uncommon double terminated crystal of “ametrine” quartz from Bolivia , combining the golden citrine hue with purple amethyst hue. Since the original find about 20 years ago (which this came from) little of any crystal quality has ever appeared again. The terminations on this piece are real and not etched faces! This specimen appears internally virtually flawless and would be able to cut gem material. A fantastic colored, impressive and highly desirable specimens from this Bolivian local. Ex Berni Whyte collection. The overwhelming majority of ametrine crystals are severely etched with hardly any if any crystal form visible. A very attractive example of this material that is only found in one place in the world like this. This piece ways a very decent 253gms (1265cts). Way better in person. Please note except for the pics where the crystal is held up to the (weak) sunlight, there is no back-lighting used in any pics.Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
