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 come from the Artigas department in Uruguay, which is a location characteristic for amethysts with smaller crystals and dark purple colour.

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