The present, fine triangular-shaped amethyst possesses a deep, luxurious purple hue with a hints of red flashes when rotating the gem. Both the excellent transparency and high luster make this a stone worthy of consideration by the most serious collector. Weighing approximately 136.63 carats and measuring 35.40 x 34.77 x 25.20mm
