This is an Amethyst stalactite from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. This is not a true stalactite in that it is not formed from minerals deposits in water dripping and accumulating the same way that the calcite ones do. Rather, they form around agate tubes that are in the volcanic bubble with it. This piece has a lovely rich purple color and a unique shape that is sure to spark conversation. It stands on it's own too which makes it a perfect display piece.
This piece measures approximately 23.8cm tall x 12.6cm wide x 9.8 cm.
