This stunning geode is split in two and displayed atop a stylish metal stand. An impressive scope of textures and colours are found in this beautiful, fully polished piece, from the rough basalt to the combinations of the mineral formations and colours, such as the very deep purple amethyst inside with its large crystal peaks. The fully polished borders display splendid colours of brown, cream,pink agateand white quartz all displayed alongside the darker, rough basalt. This results in a fantastic blend of colours that demand attention and capture the imagination. Pieces such as this geode are especially impressive, as it is not always possible to polish the entire geode due to the thinness of the agate layers.
