Amethyst Geode in Basalt

If you think this piece pops in photos, wait until you see that purple in person! This gorgeous amethyst geode was found in Uruguay. Amethyst forms within air pockets of volcanic rock (basalt). Silica rich fluids flowed through these air pockets and began to cool and crystallize. Through natural processes within the earth, small concentrations of iron present in the quartz turned the amethyst a beautiful purple color. This piece has a natural crystal cluster front, lightly polished sides, and a cut base so that it stands freely on its own. 

Approx. 3.5" L x 2.75" W x 4.25" H
