Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: South America, Uruguay, millions and millions of years old. A section of amethyst (purple quartz) and white/clear quartz crystals from the interior lining of a large geode. Polished stalactite "eyes" give it a fascinating appearance. The name of this popular purple gemstone is Greek in origin and means "not drunken." Some scholars suggest that this was due to the belief that Amethyst had the power to stave off the effects of alcohol; however, most believe that the Greeks were probably referring to the near wine-like hue of some amethyst stones. Comes with custom, museum-quality stand. Size: 7.55" W x 8.7" H (19.2 cm x 22.1 cm)

Provenance: Ex- Uruguay collection

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
