Amazing Amethyst Geode Display On Stand - Spectacular

 
 
 
 
Words can barely describe how beautiful this specimen is in person. It has a dark purple, amethyst geode from Artigas, Uruguay which has been cut in half, polished and mounted on a stand allowing both halves to be displayed. The amethyst crystals are about as nice has they come, undamaged with a gorgeous dark purple coloration.

This about as nice as they come. Be sure to check out the 360 degree rotating video of this spectacular piece!

Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to natural irradiation, iron impurities, and the presence of trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. It’s considered a semi-precious gemstone, and just two centuries ago was considered to have a value on par with diamonds, sapphires and rubies. The largest, and best known amethyst deposit occur in southern Brazil and Uruguay but many localities around the world produce an amazing variety of amethyst crystals and formations.
