"Cathedral" Amethyst Vug

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 7 May 2012 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This is yesterday's post, full length, from Sherpa's former business -- crystals & mineral specimens imported from South America. We considered selling this 2-foot leaning cathedral, but the thought of it being gone made me cry, so Sherpa said ok. It's like a member of the family! -- hangs out with my plants, and we believe, gives nice vibes to our home. Hard to photograph and far too heavy to move, so I just left him there with his plant buddies. I used the Ortonish feature to add a little atmosphere.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

In France, the day is more around a Rose than a green plant... but it's France... Have a nice révolution day..

@Nathanael: A rose, a rock, a plant, a revolution. Life on Earth as usual. :-D

That is a real beautiful piece to the point of looking alive . . I can so understand the place it holds.

@Ronnie 2¢: You got it! I mean, naturally Ronnie Twocents would animate a leaning Amethyst vug. It is incredibly heavy. I cannot make it budge.

@Jules: Thanks Jules. It leans, which I like. It gives it attitude.

@Hiro: Hi and yes it is such a nice ambiance, if not really tangible vibration. I am sure you know what I mean.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

No wonder you wanted to keep it. It is really beautiful. The location gives scale.

It's a stunning piece. Almost looks edible here! (ouch, what happened to my teeth?)

@Rick: Gosh yes, grape snowcone, or ice cubes. I am so thirsty for that as I read.

Shar from Pilot Butte near Regina, SK, Canada

Very pretty....love it! Did you find this in your area?

7 May 2012 5:59pm

@Shar: Pretty isn't it? Just has "presence." It was imported from Brazil or Peru many years ago. Hey! So excited to see you firmly into our trip! The small chalet is charming and you'll love it. You will love Chico, not to mention the magical Yellowstone Park. What a fun thing to look forward to, for all of us.

LauraS from Chico, United States

Wow, that is huge! I can see why you would NOT want to part with it. It would feel like a part of the family. It has a real "presence" - and I can imagine the vibe is very good.

@LauraS: Yes, it's a big one, and just has a firm place in our lives. The vibe is indescribable. Thanks Laura!

I was browsing the community page and saw this image and thought, wow, that looks familiar--then I looked below and saw your name and thought of course!

@MONICA: :-D That must have been kinda funny. Also interesting that you have a good memory of it. Well, there are no 2 alike come to think of it!

He is certainly a formidable member of your family, and a beautiful one at that!
