Amerthust Mine

The visitors' first expedition is to the abandoned amethyst mine nearby. A "pipe" of amethyst crystals
can be seen in the rock face at chest height between the two people on the left.
The Sarusus complex of building were originally erected for the mine owners and workers.
Since the mine was abandoned they have been converted and added to serve the tourists.
