This geode consist of medium grade amethyst from Brazil. Geodes are geological secondary structures which occur in certain sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Amethyst geodes occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or ancient lavas by iron rich fluid within the molten material. Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz which is rich in iron impurities, giving it a purple hue.
Amethyst crystals like these grow in cavity spaces within rocks. The geodes occur when crystals grow inward within the cavity space created by the gas/fluid bubbles.
Wow! This specimen of Amethyst is just too beautiful for words. I can't get over all of the beautiful terminations in this piece. The vug goes all the way through & there's a big calcite crystal in the mix!
Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras enhancing cognitive perception as well as accelerating the development of intuitive & psychic ability. It initiates wisdom & greater understanding, & is a stone of comfort for those grieving the loss of a loved one.
