Large Brazilian Deep Purple Amethyst Geode

South America, Brazil, millions and millions of years old. A huge amethyst crystal quartz cluster, a natural mineral specimen lining the interior of a geode assuming the shape of an elongated heart. The name of this popular purple gemstone is Greek in origin and means "not drunken." Some scholars suggest that this was due to the belief that amethyst had the power to stave off the effects of alcohol; however, most believe that the Greeks were probably referring to the near wine-like hue of some amethyst stones. The deeply saturated violet coloring of this specimen is absolutely breathtaking, and the cut and polished edge presents a mesmerizing layered pattern of deep purple, lavender, and white hues.
