Amethyst Crystal Egg, a beautifully polished and magnificent crystal.   You can see the paler crystals on the polished exterior and the deep purple of the natural Amethyst crystals inside.  Nature as art.  Simply beautiful.

Our Amethyst Crystal Egg would make a stunning gift or wonderful piece for home, office or hotel.  Lovely to look at, it will attract light and be much talked about!

Such crystals occur in Vugs which are equivalent to Vocanic ‘bombs’.  They are subject to heat and pressure deep in the earth.  They were then forced to the surface by the collision of Atlantic tectonic plates 100 million years ago!

As with all amethyst, our Amethyst Crystal Egg is a form of quartz (Si O2).   The quartz is naturally coloured, over millenia, by minute quantities of hematite.  Hematite is a red, metallic mineral.

Amethyst crystals were revered by the ancients and it has been found in artefacts as old as 5000 years.

Although Amethyst occurs throughout the world,  the best is from the South of Brazil, where this egg was found and worked.

A massive chunk of crystal, shipping is free to mainland UK and charged simply at cost overseas.
