Amethyst Geode

I HAVE FOUND THE AMETHYST GEODE TO BE THE MOSTCAPTIVATING AND BEAUTIFUL. EACH ONE, UNIQUELY SHAPED BY NATURE, THEIR SHELLS LINED WITH THOUSANDS OF PURPLE AMETHYST CRYSTALS. ONLY ONE PLACE ON EARTH ARE THESE HIGH QUALITY AMETHYST GEODES, HORNS, RINGS, AND PLATES FOUND, THE BRAZILIAN -URUGUAYAN BORDER OF SOUTH AMERICA. THESE WONDERS THAT HAVE TAKEN NATURE MILLIONS OF YEARS TO CREATE, STARTED OUT AS A GAS BUBBLE FROM A MAGMATIC FLOW. IN THE FOLLOWING EPOCH, GROUND WATER WOULD SLOWLY PERMEATE THE CAVITY, DEPOSITING ITS DISSOLVED MINERAL DEPOSITS, SLOW ENOUGH FOR THE DISSOLVED MINERALS TO ASSEMBLE INTO THEIR UNIQUE CRYSTAL FORM. GREAT PIECES FOR DISPLAY AND THEY ARE REAL EYE CATCHERS!
