Amethyst is a purple gem from the quartz family. Its characteristic colour, whose intensity may differ, is influenced by ionizing radiation on a small admixture of iron compounds. The mineral occurs in basalts, where it forms large crystal fillings of cavities.

Druses are aggregates of crystals on the surface of a rock or mineral. These amethyst druses have a flat cut base and the edges of crystal aggregates are polished. These pieces come from the Artigas department in Uruguay, which is a location characteristic for amethysts with calcite formations growing on the surface of their crystals. In general, Uruguayan amethysts are typical for their stalactite growths and a dark purple colour. The EXTRA QUALITY (EXQ) is the highest quality level we offer.
