38" Multi-Window Amethyst Geode on Metal Stand - Spectacular!

This is a huge, one-of-a-kind, multi-window amethyst geode on a large custom metal stand. This gargantuan geode was carefully extracted from the hard basalt formations near Artigas, Uruguay. It was then masterfully prepared by the local craftsman to create this natural work of art.

The geode itself is 38" tall, and stands 53" high on its stand. It is full of exceptionally dark, high quality amethyst crystals and multiple viewing windows have been created into different sections of the geode. The exterior faces of the geode have been hand polished.

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.
