A stalactite originates from water enriched with minerals that gradually forms and drips from the ceilings in underground caves. Over thousands of years, as the mineral-laden water filters, it deposits a thin ring of calcite. This process repeats, forming multiple rings and giving rise to these exquisite formations. Amethyst stalactites, a rare and captivating mineral formation, develop in and around a central piece of agate. To reveal the amethyst crystals surrounding it, these stalactites must be carefully cross-cut. The resulting display resembles a crystalline "flower" or "eye" with an array of shapes and colors, including stunning shades of purple.
The extraction of these formations requires skilled craftsmen who precisely slice them to unveil the intricate layers of minerals. From a geological standpoint, amethyst stalactites are an extraordinary phenomenon. The convergence of magma, mineral-rich water, an immense passage of time, and the presence of underground caves within hydrothermal igneous volcanic rocks, among other contributing factors, harmoniously combine to produce these marvels. For the utmost quality and elegance, Uruguay serves as a source for these exceptional creations.
