This specimen of Amethyst Quartz is cut into a tall rounded cathedral shape with a flat base that allows it to stand upright, making it a stunning display piece that features a smooth dark gray shell and an exposed center that is full of near black, dark purple tiny crystals that are also covered in a dusting of druzy crystals, giving this specimen a unique velvet-like appearance.
Amethyst is a variation of traditional quartz that can range in color from very dark to light purple and include hues of gray and orange. Its purple color develops as its iron inclusions are exposed to natural radiation over long periods of time and its shade of color is determined by the concentration of iron found within the quartz at the time of crystallization.
Like other varieties of quartz, Amethyst is a powerful crystal that promotes the physical and spiritual cleansing of negative energy. It is especially good for relieving stress, irritability and anger from the body and mind and encourages peace and tranquility in our everyday lives.
