Amethyst On Wood Base, Uraguay

Member's Price:
$396.00 - $445.50

Amethysts are the most valuable variety of quartz and owe their rich purple color to iron and manganese inclusions. Exposure to heat or irradiation can produce a yellow to orange color (citrine) or a pale green color (prasiolite). The hexagonal crystal structure can vary in size from microcrystalline drusy to large scepters and often forms inside agate geodes.

Deep purple amethyst with banded agate. Wood base. Uruguay.
