An exquisite black amethyst druzy quartz cluster with polished stalactites. Rare and notoriously difficult to find, this stunning and unique black amethyst druzy quartz, is known as Black “galaxy” Amethyst to collectors. The unique black druzy colour requires a very particular environment to occur, including hematite inclusions and a higher iron content inside the crystalline matrix. To further add to its beauty, this piece also has several layers of quartz on top which add a glimmering dimension to its aesthetic causing an intense sparkle. The edges of the natural sculpture have been polished and reveal grey agate, white quartz and some glimpses of green caledonite. The piece is enhanced with 2 polished stalactites resembling “circles”, demonstrating an aesthetic harmony between natural beauty and design. The back of the piece maintains its rough basalt condition, and the sculpture is a very decorative piece and is displayed on a custom metal stand.
