The term “Black Amethyst” is a widely argued term for very darkly colored Amethyst. The Quartz is very deeply colored due to irradiation and other impurities, that in some cases it is hard to tell the violet color without the aid of a thin slice. It is typically found in granitic pegmatites, or veins in granitic regions, where Quartz has been subjected to very long periods of accumulating damage from radiation.
This Black Amethyst cabochon is stunning! It is especially sparkly in the sunlight and is slightly larger than the size of a penny coin. This cabochon’s beauty is easy to appreciate and would be perfect to use for making jewelry or further accessorising your personal items.
