WORLDS LARGEST GEM STORE
Sharing its borders with Brazil to the north and Argentina to the west, Uruguay is a small country with a population of just 3.3 million. Most of its gem mining activities take part in Artigas, which is the most northern region of the country.
There are currently around 25 to 35 small scale mines in operation and most search for two members of the Quartz family: Amethyst and Agate.
The Amethyst is of a very high quality with a deep violet colour, and although very little is found in terms of carat weight, it is generally more highly prized than those of neighbouring Brazil and Bolivia.
The Amethyst in these interchangeable earrings is from Uruguay.
