Amethyst with Barite
I saw this piece at a small local show and it really caught my eye. Nothing too special about it, but the random cluster of pristine Amethyst Quartz crystals along with a similarly random coxcomb cluster of orange Barite on a matrix of miniature brown Calcite crystals was just to much to ignore, so I picked it up. A really interesting (can I say “cute?”) piece with a lot going on, and in excellent condition.
