**Worlds biggest Amethyst Geode -- The 'Empress of Uruguay' -- Atherton Tablelands, Cairns,Queensland Australia.
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. 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.**
