Sometimes amethyst stalactites from Uruguay are cut into thin slices that are then polished to reveal the beauty of the formations inside. This is a very colorful example of this type of material. The core of the stalactite shows concentric rings of gray, white, and clear inside. Outside the core, the crystals turn dark purple as they reach the outside rim, which is composed of sharp crystal terminations. This is an excellent example of this unusual form of amethyst. Slices like this make beautiful jewelry pendants.
