This stunning purple amethyst is of the highest quality because it comes from Uruguay--the country that produces the world's finest amethyst. The rarity of and competition for Uruguayan amethyst comes from its deeper colors that unlike majority of amethyst on the market, is not enhanced.
With multiple crevices and little "caves" filled with crystals, this amethyst is endlessly captivating! Place under any light--natural or fluorescent--and watch as it shines with its many hues of violet!
The sparkling, purple quartz has been used for jewelry and other decorative purposes for over 2,000 years.

My wife and I got into rockhounding this past year and so when I saw that amethyst was one of the gifts I knew I had to get one for her. This Uruguayan Amethyst is stunning and she absolutely loved it. The purple is deep with great sparkle. I appreciated the polished edges which makes the piece very nice to hold and look at. I am completely satisfied with this purchase.
