The rich purple colour of this amethyst geode is truly impressive. Mined in Brazil, it boasts large translucent crystals and is an incredible piece of rock to have on display.
Amethyst which is the birthstone for February is the purple variety of the mineral quartz whose colour is caused primarily by trace impurities of iron. The presence of the chemical element manganese is responsible for determining the specific shade colour which can vary considerably from one stone to the next.
Geode's come in many different shapes and sizes and they make great display pieces especially for rock and mineral enthusiasts. It's worth noting however that the purple colour of amethyst does fade if exposed to bright sunlight for long periods of time so it's always recommended to keep the mineral amethyst well away from direct sunlight.
