Amethyst Citrine and Quartz

 
TITLE AMETHYST CHURCH 17501
DESCRIPTION This shape in amethyst is referred to as a "church" and this example is impressive in both its size and colour. They can be sourced 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. It is the birthstone for February and the name is derived from Ancient Greek, where they believed that the stone protected its owner from drunkeness!
