DEN13-1006 Quartz var. Amethyst Sold Goboboseb Mts., Erongo District, Namibia ex. Marshall Sussman Cabinet, 14.3 x 7.0 x 5.8 cm Most Gogobos amethysts look more or less the same. Every now and then, one LEAPS out at you. This is a spectacular example that is just so much more 3-dimensional, colorful, mesmerizing, and complex in person that even its colorful photo does not do it justice. It "glows" with internal, saturated colors and phantoms. Ex Sussman Collection, Joe Budd Photos.
