Sometimes people can see in ordinary things something that does not really exist, a vision conjured up by their imagination. But sometimes all sorts of interpretations are just unnecessary. Not long ago Uruguayan miners have found a piece of basalt inside which the most extraordinary geode of this millennium was hidden. Nature had given it the shape of a heart!

As Marcos Lorenzelli, a manager at Uruguay Minerals, recalls, that day they began working deep at the new Santa Rosa mine in the Artigas area. Soon after the work started, they hit a particularly hard block of basalt. The workers had worked very hard on it, and someone jokingly said that such toil should be royally rewarded. These words were fateful. The split rock revealed to the world a heart-shaped amethyst geode of striking beauty!

The heart shape is very popular, that is why Uruguay Minerals often recreate it
