If you get the MR just look at the issue (May/June 2022) in the What’s New in Tucson. Tom Moore did a short write-up on this find.
A little more history on this location. Amethyst from Stanley Butte is uncommon to rare. There was one small pocket dug 20 or more years ago with nice quartz crystals but nothing on matrix. The only pocket of really good quartz crystal (colorless) on andradite (green dressy crystals) was found over 40 years ago. Additional work was done in this area about 8 years ago with nothing being found. It is a very mineralogically rich area but the San Carlos Apache Tribe has closed off the area to collecting.

Amethyst on green garnet is something you don't see too often - great combination!
