Double Terminated Amethyst Point
UNIQUE + POLISHED + COLORFUL
This crystal is polished into two points. Amethyst is a semi-precious quartz made of silica. Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals at the Earth's surface. Its chemical composition consists of one part silicone and two parts oxygen. Its color is due to irradiation, iron impurities, and additional transition metals, which create a complex crystal lattice.
This product is approximately 1.5 inches long.
Amethyst, the birthstone for February, is one of our most popular gemstone materials. Amethyst forms in long, prismatic crystals in geodes or hallow rocks. These geodes form when there are cavities in volcanic rock. As the rock cools, the mineral-saturated water, gases and volcanic material distill and crystallize. When these crystals harden, they form amethyst. Although generally more of a deeper purple, the stone can also have a reddish-purple tinge, or a very pale purple tinge that fades into a lilac.
