A few nice smoky and amethyst crystals dug up from Diamond Hill Mine in South Carolina.
This one is huge. You can see my hand as a size reference in the one photo. I have a video of a good enhydro moving around inside this monster. It was tough to rock the bubble and take video at the same time..LOL
