For sale is a great amethyst, smoky single crystal from Halleluja Junction, USA. This has very good form and color, for any locality, but is especially attractive for a U.S. piece. This crystal is a very good sized, sharp, lustrous, well formed with attractive smoky and amethyst bi-color zoning. Internally, the crystal has fine gem areas, rarely does one see large individual crystal. Impressive, even more so in your hand.
