A large, beautiful Uruguayan amethyst geode cluster has been hand crafted into an amazing rock oil candle.
The oil reservoir has been embedded inside the specimen so it sits near flush to the surface it has been placed on . The result is a memorable, one-of-a-kind home decor item; look how the flame reflects off of the crystals!
Amethyst is a variety of quartz and its chemical makeup is composed of silicon dioxide. Quartz is formed in lava cavities, after gas bubbles become trapped once the lava cools and solidifies, allowing crystals to form inside. When the cavities are filled with a silica-rich liquid that contains trace amounts of iron, crystals begin to form within the cavity. Over time, the crystals are naturally irradiated, creating a reaction with the trace iron in the crystals causing them to turn purple.
