This is the finest quality Bolivian Amethyst we have had in years. Bolivian amethysts should be deep purple (the best are super deep purple without looking chalky and show a beautiful secondary violet hue. This vintage amethyst is beautiful and rivals many Uruguayan amethyst in its fine deep purple hue. Perfect for vintage style pendant. Rare for Bolivian to ever be this dark without a dull glassey look. Very gemmy look is most appealing and rare. No gray or ashey hues to drag it down. Getting harder to find these vintage gems but we keep our eyes out. PLEASE NOTE THIS GEM IS SOLD. See our other beautiful amethysts. Vibrant neon purple with no secondary hues is also desirable for high end jewelry in Bolivian.
