Incredible Heart-Shaped Amethyst Geode Discovered by Miners in Uruguay

Gifts of gemstones and minerals are common ways to show someone you care. However, the discovery of a naturally occurring amethyst geode already has a heart form, so it doesn’t need any help to show love! Workers for Uruguay Minerals found two hearts on either side of a rock they had cracked apart at the Uruguay-Brazil border.

The gorgeous geode was going to be discovered by the miners, but they were having problems getting the dig started. “We were opening the mine to work normally, but the land was difficult to work, and our employees said, ‘We have to find something really lovely due to the hard job we are doing,'” said Marcos Lorenzelli of Uruguay Minerals. When they made this once-in-a-lifetime discovery, their tenacity paid off.

The oddly shaped geode went viral, captivating Reddit and other websites before sweeping the globe. Uruguay Minerals sells its discoveries, including this one, on a webpage they call “The New Treasure.” If you’re interested in purchasing it, you may contact them via their website. Other Etsy vendors also have polished, smaller heart-shaped amethysts for sale.
