TITLE AMETHYST CHURCH 17500
DESCRIPTION This is a large and impressive example of an amethyst "church". Pieces this size are hard to source and often come from Brazil and Uruguay where hollow agates, associated with volcanic activity, sometimes contain amethyst crystals. Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz and owes its violet colour to iron impurities. Amethyst is the birthstone for February and the name is derived from Ancient Greek, since they believed that the stone protected its owner from drunkeness!
