An exquisite deep purple amethyst cluster with stalactite formation. This natural piece is surrounded and adorned with a beautiful polished frame, where it is possible to see the mineral layers developing from the rough basalt, to the grey/blue agate, to pink, brown agate, to green celadonite and finally to the deep amethyst crystal. The multicolour frame intensifies the purple vibrant tone of the amethyst. This particularly unique amethyst cluster has been cut in a triangular decorative shape. Furthermore, it’s possible to appreciate the amethyst’s stalactite formation complete and in their original state within its interior. The back of the piece maintains its rough basalt condition, and the sculpture is a very decorative piece and displayed on a custom metal stand.
