Amethyst Upright No3
Amethyst Standing Upright
This is a small but wonderful piece of Amethyst from Brazil.
As you may know, we always tend to buy Uruguayan Amethyst for its depth of colour, but we were offered some of these small Brazilian pieces (of which this is one) and of course we hand picked the ones that we thought were the best !
Brazilian Amethyst is often compared unfavourably to Uruguayan Amethyst, but the truth is that there are some really gorgeous pieces of Amethyst to be found in Brazil - and of course, because they are not that deep, deep purple that everyone lusts after, the price is much more affordable !
This piece and many of the others on this page are all small to medium, mostly around 55-70mm tall but they all have a lovely colour and a great shape. Small, but wonderful pieces really !
This one stands up nicely on its own and displays its Amethyst crystals very well.
The edges have also been polished, so no sharp bits sticking in your fingers when you pick it up !
The colour of the crystals is just lovely and they sparkle in the light !
Size approx. 68mm x 65mm x 39mm
Weight approx. 181grms
