This is a beautiful small ring cut as a horizontal slice from an amethyst geode. Both sides have been polished, and it comes with a custom wooden stand. It is very nice, even if the color is a bit pale, as I do not see any of the brown cacoxinite inclusions that are common in Brazillian amethyst, and the specimen is nearly free of damage. It has the usual green skin over the outer layer of translucent gray agate, and some of the crystals are colorless enough to be called quartz. The pictures don't do it justice - the specimen is quite light in color (it looked correct on the camera, but when transferred to the web site the images appear far too dark).
