Unusual Black Amethyst Druze Formation on Metal Stand

$4,500

About

An exquisite black amethyst druze cluster with polished stalactite. Rare and notoriously difficult to find, this stunning and unique black amethyst druze, is known as Black “galaxy” Amethyst to collectors. The unique black colour requires a very particular environment to occur, including hematite inclusions and a higher iron content inside the crystalline matrix. To further add to its beauty, this piece also has a multiple small stalactites and is overlaid with white quartz to create a beautiful sparkle. The edges of the natural sculpture have been polished and reveal grey agate, intense dark brown agate, white quartz and some glimpses of green celadonite. The back of the piece maintains its rough basalt condition. This stunning sculpture is very decorative due to its colour and size, and 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 recognised as being the finest and most aesthetic amethyst in the world, due to its intense deep purple colouration, 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.
