2" Realistic, Carved Chevron (Banded) Amethyst Skull
This is a 2" long hand carved/polished skull made out of chevron (banded) amethyst. The quality of the polish and sculpting is wonderful. The underside of the skull and the nostrils have been hollowed-out, making the specimen closer in resemblance to a real skull.
Chevron amethyst, also frequently marketed under the names dream amethyst or banded amethyst is a combination of amethyst and white quartz in a banded and often v-shaped pattern. It is found in large veins in the rock (not individual amethyst crystals) and often tumbled or polished.
