Notes - 11.55 carat Rarest Amethyst on earth this mine is exhausted except for B grade material. This is one of the rarest colors (deep violet plum) the mine ever produced. Stones of this size are virtually never found in this quality anymore and the rough conditions in mining. The only mine on earth only accessible via helicopter the mine is more of a museum than a mine now. This is very old rough recently cut into this beautiful gem which would be gorgeous mounted as a pendant or an enhancer for pearls. China depleted this mine ordering all they could pull from this Arizona (now museum,) decades ago.
Very, very rare in this color, size and origin
What we love about this gem? Amethyst from 4 Peaks mine are among the rarest, and most expensive in the world. Much rarer than Russian Siberian or Uruguayan.
When this mine was fresh it produced gems like this daily.
