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. Amethyst druses come from two deposits; druses with bigger and brighter crystals are from Brazil, while those with tiny, deep purple crystals come from the Artigas department in Uruguay. These druses come from Uruguay.

Druses are cut into the shape of heart, the edges of the crystal aggregate are smoothed out and polished.

Use: These stones represent a charming interior decoration as well as a valuable piece of a mineralogical collection.
