One bookend is 6.6" tall, 6.4" wide and weighs just under 5 lbs. The other bookend is 6.5" tall, 6.1" wide and weighs 4.5 lbs.

Chevron amethyst, also frequently marketed under the names dream amethyst or banded amethyst is a combination of amethyst and white quartz in a banded and often v-shaped pattern. It is found in large veins in the rock (not individual amethyst crystals) and often tumbled or polished.
