Zambian Dark Amethyst Point 6.5cm
This gorgeous dark purple Amethyst comes from a brand new deposit discovered in Zambia. Large stout single point with minor cascading features underneath. Beautiful! From Mapatiza, Zambia. Good to A Grade. Size approx 6.5cm. Weight approx 124g.
We managed to get hold of one box with this level of quality and colour, and we have been holding onto it for about a year now hoping to get more! The deposit is still producing very nice dark drusy plates, but thus far, we haven’t seen more of these large single points or the cubic-like clusters.
Amethyst is the name for purple to violet Quartz crystal. Its name is derived from the Greek ‘amethystos’, loosely translating to ‘not drunk’. The name relates to the ancient belief that this stone could protect its wearer from intoxication.
Amethyst owes its colour to the inclusion of trace amounts of iron in the Quartz crystal lattice – and radiation! Deep inside the earth are natural radioactive minerals, which release gamma radiation into their surroundings when they decay. When Quartz with iron is exposed to radiation, the iron atoms are transformed and change the colour of the Quartz from clear to purple.
