Part of a basalt vug that is lined with an Amethyst druse makes up this small cabinet specimen. It is in moderately good condition, as many of the more exposed crystals are damaged or broken. These crystals range in length from 0.2" (5 mm) to more than 0.6" (1.5 cm) and have very good hexagonal prismatic form; though most of their prism lengths are obscured due to intergrowth, their hexagonal pyramidal terminations are very well-formed, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess the standard vitreous luster. Their violet color is paler than average for Uraguayan Amethyst and is uneven, and tends to vary in depth from crystal to crystal. All are transparent to a degree, though clarity also varies individually.
