ANCIENT YET CONTEMPORARY
Timeless raw beauty in these primeval Earth-made art carvings with a formation phase dated back to the Crustaceous Inferior Period. Naturally weathered yet strikingly refulgent, each unique piece exudes luxury.
A stalactite begins with drops of minerals enriched water, formed in underground cave ceilings. As the mineral-loaded water drips over thousands of years it leaves behind a thin ring of Calcite. Drop after drop more rings form creating these gorgeous formations. Amethyst stalactites are a rare and stunning combination that forms in and around a central piece of agate. They must be cross-cut to expose the central agate with the amethyst crystals around it, which beautifully resemble a crystal “flower" or "eye” with infinite combinations of shapes and different colors including gleaming hues of purple.
Experienced craftsmen are imperative to extract these formations that will be precisely sliced to expose all the mineral layers. Geologically speaking, amethyst stalactites are a rare phenomenon. Magma, mineral-loaded water, an unimaginable length of time, and an underground hosting cave within hydrothermal igneous volcanic rocks, plus other multiple factors met in harmonic balance to result in these wonders, which can be sourced from Uruguay for the highest quality and elegance.
