Amethyst is a purple gem falling into the quartz category. Its characteristic colour, whose intensity may differ, is influenced by ionizing radiation on a small admixture of iron compounds in its structure. The mineral occurs in basalts, where it forms extensive crystal infill in cavities.

Points are big long crystals formed by erosion and desintegration of crystal aggregates (aka druses). These amethyst points come from the state Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.
