Exquisite deep purple beautifully shaped amethyst aesthetic cluster with stalactites formation. Colours fuse together in this uniquely beautiful piece, presenting the viewer with purple amethyst mixed with red-orange druze, creating a lovely colour. Amethyst is predominantly light violet to deep purple, but can be found with secondary hues of red and blue. Within this splendid formation one can notice glimpses of red hues within the violet to reflect the mineralogical journey the amethyst has traversed as it has developed. The mineral sculpture itself is further embellished by polished stalactite formations, and revels green celadonite, as well as red-brown agate and a white quartz layer between the amethyst and the basalt. The back and the edges of the piece maintain its rough basalt condition, allowing us to imagine how was spotted and formed inside the cavities of volcanic rock millions of years ago. This stunning piece its very decorative and is displayed on a custom metal stand.
