India surprisingly does not offer a wide variety of mineral treasures. They do have an extensive deposit of Zeolite minerals that dazzle the eye with amazing color and aesthetic. Karur, in the south, is a fantastic world renowned Amethyst deposit. And far north in the Himalayas, like all mountain ranges, exceptional quartzes of great variety can be found.
