This is my amethyst crystal. I was lucky to obtain such a nice specimen. It’s has two openings, one small and one large revealing it’s deep purple color.
Amethyst crystals are a type of quartz that has an iron impurity thus giving it’s purple color.
If you have a amethyst crystal please keep it away from a lot of sunlight because it will fade the color.

Thank you winchestergirl42?

And I learned something new today, I had no idea that that's what amethyst is, seen 'em so many times, but no idea that it's the iron that makes them that colour. Thanks for the informative post. It's a such a pretty specimen.

You are welcome. Amethyst is quite a common crystal. I gave my aunt a small cluster for Christmas one year it was just 13.00 dollars. The large geodes are quite expensive.
