This is a super cool large Agate + Amethyst GEODE Crystal Skull. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. Blue-grey Agate is accented by a large central vug of AMETHYST! Vugs are natural formations, also known as "crystal cave inclusions", and considered highly collectible. Tiny shimmery areas and even some hints of rainbow sheen are visible in the Amethyst crystal points. Best seen in bright light/sunlight as you move the stone around in your hands. One of a kind and super energetic! There is a bit of subtle banding in the Agate as well. Much nicer than any photo could ever show - I guarantee it.
There are a few small organic spots that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. ALL inclusions present in this piece come from 100% natural formations in the stone.
It weighs about 9.1oz, so just over half a pound, and measures approximately 3 1/8" inches long X 1 3/4" inches wide at the widest point X 2 1/4" inches tall. Code-051223-20904
