Stunning, 5" Amethyst Cluster - Las Vigas, Mexico

This is a stunning, amethyst crystal cluster from Las Vigas, Mexico. The entire piece measures 5x3.6" and there are dozens of beautiful crystals with nice terminations protruding at multiple angles.

Las Vigas amethyst crystals are found in several locations around the Piedra Parada village within Veracruz, Mexico. The crystals are contained inside solid vesicles within various andesite rock formations throughout the mountainous region. Several mines operate throughout the andesitic rock formations, including La Cascada, La Callejones, El Bordo, La Flor, Ensenal, Los Volcanes, Torrecellas, La Mina Grande, and La Loma. These mines are worked by the owners of the land and the villagers of the region, making up the majority of their income. Most of these mines are only accessible through old hiking trails.
