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 are from the Bahía state in Brazil. Amethyst deposits are stored there a hundred metres deep in the ground and the extraction is very difficult.

Mineralogical specimens are rough, untreated minerals retaining their characteristic crystal shape. They are stones in their purest form and highly popular pieces among collectors and the public.

Use: Amethyst points can be charming interior decorations as well as valuable pieces of your mineralogical collection.
