PINK AMETHYST FROM ARGENTINA FOR SALE

These pink amethyst geodes are a relatively new find from the Choique Mine in Argentina. It's a bit of a conundrum as to what to technically call them. Amethyst basically by definition is purple, but according to analysis at the California Institute of Technology it was described as

"purplish pink amethystine quartz additionally coloured by microscopic hematite particles. They are not rose quartz or pink quartz as classically defined".

So, chemically it's amethyst yet it's not purple in color. We're going to go with labeling it as pink amethyst for now as that's what everybody is referring to these geodes by.
