Here's an amethyst specimen which is an excellent example of the spectacular, deep purple color of amethyst from Uruguay (widely considered the finest in the world). The crystals form a mound (some call it hedgehog or a starburst), but it is in fact the tip of a stalagmite! In the center, you can see a calcite crystal around which the amethyst grew.  The crystals are a deeply saturated violet purple, and they sparkle brightly as the piece is turned in the light.
