A beautiful natural Amethyst Cave. A very nice showpiece and standout conversation starter to impress for an indoor or outdoor setting.
Geodes can form in any cavity, but the term is usually reserved for more or less rounded formations in igneous and sedimentary rocks. When rock around the cavity hardens, dissolved silicates and or carbonates are deposited on the inside surface. Over time this slow feed of mineral constituents allows crystals to form inside the hollow chamber. Most geodes contain clear quartz crystals, while others have purple Amethyst crystals. Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation and iron impurities. In some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities and the presence of trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.
