There are not many things cooler than a skull carved from something pulled right out of the Earth. We here at Mineralogy have dozens of polished mineral specimens, including some very unique and interesting skull carvings! This beautiful skull is composed primarily of agate. However, as you can see in the photos, there is a cavity full of vibrant amethyst crystals strategically placed atop the skull's head. This is a statement piece for any home or apartment!
Amethyst is arguably the most popular mineral known to man. Many people are familiar with the beauty of its purple hues. Amethyst is a variation of quartz that contains trace amounts of iron. When the mineral is exposed to radioactive gamma rays, it is irradiated, producing the purple color we know and love. The saturation of the amethyst depends on the amount of iron present.
Amethyst is a near-perfect health stone. It is used for relieving nightmares and insomnia. It enhances focus in both meditation and protection from psychic attacks. Amethyst is often used to help soothe the nervous system.
