The Four Peaks Mine, Maricopa County, Arizona produces amethyst that has often been recrystallized or partially dissolved by natural acidic fluids. Here is an etched crystal with a "C-face". The bottom is concave, forming a cone with some holes through the sides.  

 

It is typical of the deformed and partially dissolved crystals in this brecciated quartzite deposit.
