Each Amethyst Console Table by Phillips Collection is a unique one of a kind piece of nature's creation. This Amethyst geode forms as tectonic lava churns, gas bubbles form and create small caverns within the lava. As the hollow caverns push towards the surface, they are filled with various fluids, and in this case trace amounts of iron, which in turn solidify to create crystal forms. Eventually this process forms an complete stone, rich in tones ranging from light to deep violet purple. Each gemstone is individually selected, polished, and placed to crate this truly amazing functional piece of art. The top rests upon a stainless steel base.
