The most notable sources of amethyst in Brazil come from Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Sul, Bahia and Maraba. Brazilian amethyst are typically found in vugs, or small cavities in rocks lined with crystals. Among the rock containing amethyst crystal in Brazil are large pockets formed by volcanic material. Some vugs were formed from lava and magmatic flow over trees or gas bubbles created by heat convection. The crystals that are produced in these areas vary in color saturation from pale to medium lilac to deep purple. The color in the crystals of these vugs is highly concentrated in the tips of the visible termination of each crystal.
