This is a carved, freestanding amethyst geode from Uruguay. Amethyst is one of the world's most popular stones, and specimens from Uruguay are some of the most sought after. The crystals exhibit a very deep, 'grape jelly' purple color and the rock matrix that the crystals sit upon has been carved into an aesthetically pleasing curve with a flat bottom surface for easy display in multiple ways. This geode would look fantastic on a desk or shelf, or in a crystal grid or altar!
This specimen is approximately 4.5 in x 3 in x 2.5 in at its tallest and widest points.
