Unique Room Decor - Brazilian Amethyst Plate    
Mineral information:

This plate has so much to appreciate: a range of purple hues from light violet through bluish purple to smoky; loads of well-defined, water-clear points that glitter in any light; and bonus crystals of Calcite, Goethite and inclusions of Cristobalite (I'm fairly sure that's what they are, but I will check with an expert) and Hematite. It is a wonderful piece for a rock collector as much as for someone who wants to add 'something special' to their living space. (If you use it as decor, please do not keep it too near a window - some stones (Amethyst among them) can change or lose color after prolonged exposure to sunlight. )

For a really high-magnification image of Cristobalite and Goethite inclusions in Amethyst, I suggest you visit this link (scroll down about 1/3 of the page): http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,17,223163,page=3 . Prepare to be delighted!
