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.
Spirit Amethyst, also known as spirit quartz and pineapple quartz, is a unique growth pattern only found in South Africa. It features one larger crystal point coated in many, many smaller termination along the main crystal faces. This specimen also showcases iron inclusions, leading to a slight orange hue.
