A gorgeous old timer with curious plate-like aggregates of pyrites (after barite?) on which sprays of opaque quartz sprays formed. The amethyst crystals reach 2.2cm and are aesthetically distributed. A couple of broken amethysts reveal this occurred in situ as the broken faces are healed. Obtained in a purchase of old dealer stock that had some very nice old time Naica pieces.
