amethyst crystal


Found in abundance around the world from Brazil to Mexico, Uruguay, Zambia, Europe as well as North America, amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. Used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians, amethysts have been found in the tombs of pharaohs and inside tombs of ancient Babylonian kings.

The crystals often appear as a cluster of pyramids growing from a geode base. The alluring amethyst inhabits the mysterious space of other invisible realms, enhancing imagination and creative ideas. Colours vary from pale translucent purple/violate growing from a whitish stem to rich deep purple hues known as 'dark amethyst'.

Amethyst crystals polished and natural appear to have an other world aura about them. The stones often seem to 'disappear' from sight no matter how large they are. This effect comes from the higher frequencies of the crystals and as a result healers often used them as a connector or bridge between the worlds.

Just as with clear quartz amethyst crystals can be found in an amazing variety of forms from crystal points, cactus quartz (also called spirit quartz), amethyst scepters, amethyst clusters and geodes to phantom amethyst crystals and smoky amethyst.

Amethyst is often called the 'stone of the psychics'. It was believed that the crystals strengthen our dreaming consciousness and expand the mind to see beyond the restrictions of 3D. The ancient Egyptians created amulets, scarabs and made beads from cut and polished amethyst stone. They believed that the crystal protected the wearer. Amethyst was seen as the 'cleansing stone'.
