A purple Amethyst and colourless Quartz cabochon from Minas Gerais, Brazil with Goethite 'organ pipe' inclusions.

The Goethite crystals, in the form of fan-like sheaves, are arranged in parallel rows across the face of the stone, their golden metallic lustre adding to the allure of this charming gem.

These inclusions are sometimes referred to as 'Cacoxenite', although this is a commercial name which is based on an early scientific mis-identification.
