Hüttenberg amethyst xx on siderite xx

An absolute rarity – quartz crystals on dove blue chalcedony and siderite iron ore . The name amethyst is basically not correct, because the blue chalcedony, on which the quartz crystals are grown, shines through and thus gives an amethyst-like color. This name has been accepted by the miners at that time.

This piece is from level 58. The mine was closed in 1977 and is no longer accessible.

Weight . 1.1 kg. Dimensions: 14 x 10 x 6 cm
