Description

This is a stunning SWISS AMETHYST SZEPTER from the Fieschergletscher (Fiesch Glacier) of Valais canton. Apparently, from what we are told, this special pocket of 1975 was the most famous single large Amethyst find in Switzerland. Amethyst is extraordinarily rare there, in contrast with its smoky and clear quartz cousins, for reasons of geology and mineralogy. Amethysts, and especially szepters from Switzerland, even small crystals, have therefore always commanded a premium on the collector market. And this is a major Swiss Amethyst-Szepter specimen, and dramatic when displayed from every angle. It has distinct szepter growth and superb lilac colour. Very, very minor bruising we can easily forgive due to the great overall aesthetics of this 360 ° specimen. Comes with custom lucite base for display. Ex Joachim Hennrich collection.
