Ellis mine amethyst from Due West, S.C.
Accompanied by the original mineral stamps that were issued over 43 years ago. One of the 4 stamps is an Ellis Mine amethyst(top left one)
I also got a commemorative letter with George Washington Carver on it, and a stamp with him on it.
Unbeknownst to many collectors and diggers, is the fact he dug amethyst himself at the Ellis Mine, back in the 1930's.
I just thought it was really cool to have the little bits of history to go with the stone.
