Quartz, Variety: Amethyst & Rose quartz
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
H. 21 in - W 19.5 in
Most of the amethyst "geodes" from the Brazil-Uruguay border feature varying amounts of amethyst and agate with an occasional selenite or calcite in the interior. This particular geode contains a few amethyst crystals that have been over-coated with bright druzy crystals of rose quartz, giving this uncommon specimen a rich raspberry- colored interior. In some areas the rose quartz stands alone, coating the inner walls of banding agate, creating an aesthetic concentric pattern.
