Description

• The first step in amethyst receiving its purple color begins during crystal growth, when trace amounts of iron are incorporated into a growing quartz crystal. After crystallization, gamma rays, emitted by radioactive materials within the host rock, irradiate the iron to produce the purple color
• The intensity of the purple color can vary from one part of the crystal to another. These color variations, known as color zoning, are obvious in many amethyst crystal specimens and often reflect the crystal’s hexagonal geometry with the most intense purple color seen near the termination of the crystals
• These are natural amethyst pieces that have been carved into an obelisk shape so variations in color and shape should be expected as well as inclusions or other small imperfections
• You will receive one mini carved amethyst crystal tower similar to the reference specimens. Enlarged images included to show detail, not all images to scale
• Can range in size between 1.5-2″ tall, .75-1.25″ wide and roughly .5-1.25″ deep measured from the longest possible points
