High Quality Half Amethyst Geode with Calcite Formation

About the Item

A stunning half geode with an incredible amethyst and overlaid calcite formation at the bottom. The interior of the piece is a very deep cavity which presents very high-quality amethyst due to its deep purple and high peaked crystals. A further calcite formation lies at the bottom of the piece, which is overlaid with black hematite and white quartz. Calcite formation on amethyst is relatively rare, owing to different formation temperatures required for the two minerals. The polished edges of the formation reveal the green celadonite, grey agate and the aesthetic is sealed with a smattering of sparkling white quartz crystals. These minerals frame and intensify the vibrant deep purple color. The back of the piece maintains its rough basalt condition allowing us to imagine how this was spotted and formed inside the cavities of volcanic rock millions of years ago. This stunning piece its very decorative for its shape, size and mix of colors, and is well is displayed on a custom metal stand This piece was legally and ethically sourced directly in the prestigious mines of Uruguay, South America. Uruguayan amethyst is internationally recognized as being the finest and most aesthetic amethyst in the world, due to its intense deep purple coloration, the large size of its peaked crystals, and its durability. These crystals were formed over 120-140 million years during the Cretaceous period, and as all of our pieces are formed naturally, they are completely unique and unrepeatable natural wonders of art.
