This is a sweet and charming specimen: a rounded cluster section of amethyst "flowers" on matrix, from Uruguay. This brightly shaded piece features the cross-sections of agate and quartz stalactites surrounded by amethyst, forming a "flower" shape. This cluster is unique in that it displays multiple miniature flowers on matrix rock. It would look equally beautiful displayed flat, as shown, or upright on a stand.
Uruguayan amethyst is somewhat less well-known than that of Brazil, but Uruguay is now producing some of the world's most beautiful specimens. Uruguayan amethyst has a characteristic bright yet rich shade, which varies from bright lilac to deepest royal purple.
*NOTE: Amethyst should not be displayed for prolonged periods in sunlight, as its color can fade.
