The Roskin Gem News Report documented the donation of a Four Peaks Amethyst by Brenda Smith to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History.
“I became aware of the Four Peaks Amethyst from my cutter, Darryl Alexander. I researched the mine and stone and was very impressed since I enjoy history and how it contributes to where we are today. The amethyst is so beautiful with its deep, intense purple with red flashes.” – Brenda Smith
