12.5ct Nigerian Amethyst


12.5ct Amethyst, Nigeria

Freeform cut in Canada with a buff top and faceted bottom, lapidary work by Hans Durstling

18.5 x 12 x 10mm

The best colored piece of Nigerian Amethyst from a large parcel, in a perfect medium tone.  This one was cut to fit the shape of the rough, with a cabochon style crown and faceted pavilion.  Would make an awesome, unique pendant stone or be a fine addition to the Quartz section of any gem collection!  There is some stripe-ey zoning as well as some needle inclusions, not distracting and keeping the price affordable 😉
