Worlds biggest Amethyst Geode – The ‘Empress of Uruguay’ – Atherton Tablelands, Cairns
Situated just an hour from the Cairns international Airport on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, The Crystal Caves offers an experience without equal in Australia.
One of Australia’s most spectacular private mineralogical collection with over 600 specimens on display!
You will stand in awe in front of The Empress.
At well over three metres tall (that’s eleven feet) and weighing two and a half tonnes, the size is certainly impressive but it’s the sheer beauty that makes people gasp when they first see her. This is the Worlds biggest Amethyst Geode – The Empress of Uruguay but the tens of thousands perfect, deep purple Amethyst crystals that nature has formed naturally inside truly amaze everyone who sees her. It is very unusual to see Amethyst crystals of this quality – rated as being “AA Jewellery Quality” – and together in their thousands they present a truly dazzling sight. Many people spend long periods of time just gazing and absorbing the sheer beauty of The Empress, pondering the intricacies of nature.
Unlike typical museums, but like a great many of the pieces on display in The Crystal Caves, visitors are welcome to touch, feel and take photographs of The Empress.
How was she discovered? How did she get here?
hee heee-- I was going to do a piece on this too-- :)) - I ran into a bit of info about it as I was compiling the cave discussion..., & There were some rather massive amethysts for sale on ebay recently too,-- but obviously nothing like this massive mother of purple you have displayed here== too good, love this stone.. .
WOW WOW AND WOW I just love this crystal anyway but WOW I want one or two that the kid is laying in lol I have so many ideas for those and would love to have a very olarge room to decorate according to pagan ideas using crtystals and plants/flowers etc for each position of the element. So al you would have to do is look and know immediately which directioin is which = mmmmmmmmmmm can't help but dream can I?
They are all so beautiful, I have quite a few pieces of amethyst that sit on my altar but have always wanted a giant cathedral geode, one day I will own one of my very own but until then I can just gaze in awe at these beautiful natural creations!
I love love crystals and stones and I do have a dream of owning as much as you possibly can own a crystal lol large ones to display and use and I want a king size loadstone too to use to draw money health and so on into my home. woo hoo lol
