Amethyst Gemstone Rock Tumbled 1-1.25 Inch
Information Card Included

Amethyst belongs to the quartz family. The quartz family is very large, with an enormous variety of gemstone material in every color of the spectrum. Quartz is composed primarily of silica (SiO2) and is formed when silica-bearing solutions infiltrate porous rocks and sediments. The silica then becomes impregnated into the porous rock and changes the rock into what we call quartz. 
Amethyst is very popular semi-precious stone and is used for faceting and jewelry making. Its purple color is caused by trace amounts of ferric iron. These specimens have been tumbled and polished to give them a slick and shiny surface. 
Picture is representative of the specimen you will receive.  Each rock is unique and will vary in shape, size and appearance.  No two rocks will be exactly alike.
