Color of amethyst geodes is very similar to the color of a Malbec wine

 Amazing surprise checking in at the Intercontinental hotel in Mexico City by Reforma (Campos Eliseos). My breath was taken away when I saw this beautiful 1.5 m specimen, a gorgeous amethyst geode from Minas Geraes, Brazil in the lobby. It seems to me that they were waiting for my arrival. I immediately took my camera and captured several pictures, which I believe some came up good, I hope you enjoy my selections. To celebrate, nothing better than an amethyst colored Malbec wine from Mendoza, Argentina 2010 crop.

What's new in the mineral world?
