Polished to a breath-taking finish and presented on an artistic wooden stand, this unique and beautiful piece displays a half geode. The edges of the geodes have been polished revealing a vibrant combination of greyblue agate and white quartz, framing and intensifying the deep purple high peaked crystal amethyst formed on the geode’s interior. The back of the piece is a mixture of the rough basalt and some polished agate parts, allowing us to imagine how this stunning crystal was formed inside the cavities of volcanic rock millions of years ago. A natural wonder and a stunning decorative piece due to its beauty, its size, and the mineralogical information.
