9.81 ct. 'Hourglass' Moroccan Amethyst

Color:  Medium Dark Purple / Colorless Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Boudi, Morocco Cut:  Cushion
Treatments:  None Measurements:  15.3 x 13.3 mm

Recent efforts have finally produced some gem rough from this well documented deposit.  Featured in a Gems & Gemology article in 2015 (available here), the Amethysts found at Boudi have a very distinctive zoning pattern - the deep purple forms in triangular zones that nearly touch and produce an hourglass shape.  The colorless zones have tiny inclusions of Hematite needles for a bit of an added effect.  Lovely locality variety and a good size for a faceted example of these.
