Stunning white quartz, amethyst and agate slice. This piece is a beautiful natural wonder. A thick band of white quartz with radiating crystal structure holds a heart of lilac amethyst at its centre. At its border traces of grey agate frame and contrast with the pure white of the quartz. The front of the piece is completely polished, whilst the back of the piece remains in its natural rough state. This allows us to imagine how it was spotted inside the mines, within its rough basalt matrix, and how it was formed inside the cavities of volcanic rock millions of years ago. The piece it’s a very decorative piece due to the mix of colours presented; grey, white and lilac, and is displayed on a metal custom stand. Exquisite piece which refracts light from the back as well as the front and with sparkling touch of the amethyst at its heart. The dimensions of the stand can be customized as per client’s request.
