"Black Amethyst" is the name of a 2012 find in Uruguay, where a treasure trove of Black Amethyst was unearthed, to everyone's delight! Purple Amethyst Quartz, White Quartz and Hematite (possibly Nickel, too), have merged to create denizens of lovely white, lavender and black-hued stalactites that blanket the entire inner geode surface -- not your average Amethyst! Rather, this upright is a forest of stalactite "trees" saturated with tiny druzy crystals that sparkle like crazy! A totally natural basalt outer surface has been partially cut for a more refined look, at the same retaining its rugged, naturalist feel. Not nearly as abundant as its purple cousins, this coveted Black Amethyst is the Amethyst family "black sheep" that you will be proud to display in your home!
