Rare Trapiche amethyst from Brazil.
Trapiche gems are an incredible variation of stones having a special allure that appeases the human desire for symmetry, exhibiting a distinctive star pattern from the stone’s inclusions. It is not the same as a star stone, although the pattern resembles a star shape. The name Trapiche means cogwheels used in sugar mills in the Spanish language due to the similarity of the pattern with the spokes or arms of the grinding wheel. In 1879, Émile Bertrand first described the Trapiche Emerald as having a six-ray, star-effect pattern, which isn't an optical illusion but a mysterious natural phenomenon.
