Colourful and incredibly tactile, chevron amethyst slices from South Africa. Sizes vary from small to medium. Although polished some do have broken edges. These are natural unworked stones that have been lightly polished.
In the UK chevron amethyst tends to be known as banded amethyst. The term chevron comes from the markings which often resemble chevrons.
This stone combines amethyst and milky white quartz. The two colours are the result of colour zoning which is common in amethyst. Minerals with this characteristic exhibit different shades of colour within the same crystal. Although often very subtle, chevron amethyst is the most extreme example.
