Amethyst "Wave" from Rio Grande do Sul, in Southern Brazil. The pictures don't do a very good job of conveying the true color or the three dimensionality of this piece. The color with the black background is too "blue", and the color with the white background is too smoky. I included both shots because the real color is something like an average between the two. Suffice it to say that this is a bright purple gemmy amethyst piece that will be sure to please the eye. The wave effect is fun and intriguing as the crystals of amethyst druze fold up and over a ridge of basalt. It definitely has more of a three dimensional look to the eye, and I don't think you can go wrong with amethyst, especially with these types unique and less common formations. Amethyst may well be the most popular crystal of all time!
