This is a larger Amethyst ANUNNAKI STYLE Crystal Skull, with an elongated head. The stone itself has several different shades of medium purple present with both clear areas and intricate inclusions for contrast. Including some tiny shimmery areas, and subtle light SMOKY PHANTOMS here and there. The best visibility is through the top of the head, as you tilt the stone around. Best seen when held up to bright light. The Phantoms are subtle, but definitely there.
There are some tiny organic inclusions here and there that you may be able to feel subtly as you run your fingers over the stone. They can resemble fine lines/linear indents on the surface, small notches, or look like tiny pinpricks/indents. ALL inclusions come from 100% natural parts of the stone. I always pick by energy FIRST! The photos don't do it justice, I apologize. It's much nicer 'in person' than the photos show, I guarantee it.
It weighs about 2.9oz and measures approximately 80mm (3 1/8" inches) long X about 28mm (1 1/16" inches) tall! Code-050823-20880
