Amethyst from Canada

In January and February 2019 the American Geode team went to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. One of the shows off the side of the highway was a miners’ co-op, and American Geode acquired these very fine beautiful amethyst in matrix from miners who drive them down from Canada. They are from the Thunder Bay area of Canada. Contact American Geode with questions, comments, more information at
