Striking large vertical presentation displaying vibrant purple amethyst bordered by a thick agate layer. One of a group of four impressive specimens. Pieces such as this are hard to find owing to the size and shape of the parent geode required to furnish a vertical blanket of amethyst, as well as the thick agate border, which gives the pieces stability and enhances their beauty.
