This specimen is a unique combination of 2 mineral specimens. One of the minerals are well known for being apart of the seven minerals that make up a super seven amethyst (Lepidocrocite). While Parasymplesite is not as well known to collectors and rock hounds. The tiny spots of amber color are Lepidocrocite while the Parasymplesite is the black green tinted fibrous looking material along the side and top. This particular specimen came without an information card and no additional information was known about the mineral when we acquired the specimen. The matrix material and minerals with the matrix are good indicators that the specimen originated from Mexico. But since there are multiple mines which produce these minerals it is hard to know which mine this beauty originated from.
