Dig for Amethyst Scepter Crystals
You’ll be collecting a very unique type of Amethyst crystal, a scepter crystal.
This location has been written about in rock & mineral magazine and there are multiple YouTube videos showing ordinary rockhounds collecting small, medium, and large scepter crystals.
You’ll spend most of your time in the mine looking for pockets of crystals and new seams to explore. Be prepared to work for your crystals but the reward is well worth it.
Once again, this is an excellent location for dedicated crystal collectors and rockhounds but you’ll need to schedule your dig with the local owner.

Amethyst Scepter Crystals
Amethyst crystals range in shades from lavender, rose, and lilac to deep, rich grape colors. It most commonly forms in clusters or in geodes but you won’t be digging for clusters or geodes.
Amethyst scepters are naturally formed crystals in which a new thicker crystal has grown on an old crystal.
At Hallelujah Junction, you’ll be collecting scepter crystals which are a unique and quite beautiful variety of Quartz formations and defy the typical formations of Quartz completely!
