BOX OF AMETHYST QUARTZ CHIPPINGS
 
Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil


In Rio Grand do Sul, the southernmost state of Brazil quarries produce amethyst crystals that occur lining large hollow ‘geodes’.  These were formerly gas bubbles in 130 million year old basalt lava that now forms the giant Paraná lava plateau.

  

This is a box of chippings of amethyst quartz of good colour. 

Warning: The box is sealed but this item is not suitable for young children due to small parts. 

Please note:  The colour of amethyst has been known to gradually fade if exposed to bright light, and so exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended. However, If displayed in indirect, low-level lighting the colour will last a lifetime.  See the following article for more information:
