Etched Amethyst (AAA) Brazil
The most exquisite lilac color glows from within these highly, and deeply, etched hydrothermal crystals.
Marked on every side with ancient wisdom in the form of etchings, these crystals are truly powerful energy to behold.
This incredibly rare hydrothermal etched Amethyst crystal is from a recent find from Brazil.
With these being Formed over the course of millions of years, these Amethyst crystals are hydrothermally etched, and are referred to as "dissolution" crystals.
This means that, they form in the ground as crystals and a hydrothermal solution at their source comes through at some point in the later stages of development (Most likely in the form of very hot, mineralized water) over the course of time, which actually pulls molecules away, creating these even more beautiful forms.
This makes them naturally carved by underground water flow, taking millions of years.
Hydrothermal crystals originally form as fully intact “traditional” quartz formation crystals.
Over time, and in very unique locations, a second solution may come along, usually higher temperatures carried by water or magma, and pull away silica molecules from the quartz (quartz is a silicate).
As this process unfolds, the crystals are etched in very unusual ways, and specific to their location.
These crystals have undergone immense and dramatic transformation, making these metaphysical potent and powerful transformative talismans.
