When I got home I read Utah Style & Design's article Rocks, Minerals and Crystals Serve as Earthy-Yet-Elegant Art on their website featuring some beautiful pieces available at O.C. Tanner.
Oh, and the second picture in the article is a small piece of amethyst. This is similar to what I did end up buying in NM. It was only $17.00.....right in my budget!
