L’inchiostro ormai da tempo inutilizzato, aveva formato cristalli che ostruivano la fuoriuscita di un segno fluido che rallegrasse la pagina almeno con il suo colore. The ink had been long unused: so it had formed crystals that blocked the escape of fluid a sign that cheered the page at least with its color.

One of the world's largest amethyst geodes, the Empress of Uruguay, is located in Australia's Crystal Caves. It stands an alarming eleven feet tall and is filled with magnificent, deep violet crystals.

Amethysts are my favourite gem, as well as my birthstone. I love them.

The Empress Amethyst of Uruguay The Empress had a special crate constructed tightly around her, at the mine in Uruguay, and this was then secured in her own steel container and shipped out of Brazil to Brisbane. Following the 1600km road trip to us here, huge cranes were used to remove her from the container and to gently place here in her current position. The “Empress Room” was then built around her. A lot of work and expense, but all well worth it!
