5" Realistic, Carved Chevron Amethyst Skull

 
 
 
This is a 5" long hand carved/polished skull made out of chevron 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.
