Chevron Amethyst Crystals
Colourful Chevron Amethyst Polished Stones
Although originally designed as massage wands these chevron amethyst crystals are a great addition to any collection of rocks and minerals. Each piece has a flat base on one side so sits securely without wobbling around. Chosen locally in South Africa by one of the team at Stone Mania, each stone comes in a colourful gift pouch.
Chevron amethyst or banded amethyst as it's also sometimes known features milky quartz sandwiched between rich purple coloured amethyst. The name comes from the distinctive v-shaped patterns that often resemble chevrons. Although not quite as well known as the all purple translucent variety, this stone is widely used as a lapidary material and tumbled stones are particularly popular.
Each crystal has its own unique qualities and characteristics but remember these are natural minerals that have been polished not gemstones so all have minor anomalies. Both photographs were taken in natural daylight, no artificial lighting was used.
Choose the chevron amethyst that you'd like from the dropdown list before proceeding to checkout. The stone in the twelve o'clock position is number one, numbers then continue clockwise ending with seven which is the stone in the centre. Number seven is being offered at a slightly reduced price because there is a small chip-like indentation just under the front lower right corner (photo 1). This anomaly can just about be seen in the second photo. Although not really noticeable it can be felt.
