Basic Information & History
Meteoritic Amethyst comes from Thunder Bay, Ontario. A meteorite strike in the Sudbury region 1.85 billion years ago that geologically fractured the ground for hundreds of kilometers. This was the catalyst for the Amethyst to form, and some scientists and labs theorize that trace amounts of the meteorite itself exist within the Amethyst.
Most Amethyst is formed after volcanic activity, inside gas pockets of prehistoric eruptions. Meteoritic Amethyst was formed form an impact from space, making it unique in the world of Amethyst.
Meteoritic Amethyst often forms with ‘red caps’ or ‘red inclusions’ in the Amethyst that is visible to the naked eye. This mineral is hematite. Scientific testing has revealed that up to 23 minerals can be found in Meteoritic Amethyst in trace levels.
