After many years of waiting we’ve finally been able to obtain a few more Amethyst Cathedrals in their natural unopened form. Each cathedral has had a tiny hole drilled into to ensure it was hollow and that it was Amethyst, which was thereafter covered back up so you can’t even tell it was there. We obtained 6 cathedrals total so if you would like the opportunity to open your very own Amethyst cathedral don’t wait too long.
