Reverse scepters from this rare, remote and exhausted, alpine-type Greek locality are very very rare and we have not seen one bigger than 4-5cm. Except from this monster! This is a very old piece and is the biggest known reverse scepter from the locality. The stem is a gemmy to gem smoky quartz with rough faces that hide its internal clarity. The scepter is a beautiful mix of amethyst and smoky tones. The piece has damage issues (broken-off at the base and a small ding at the top) but is an important locality specimen.
