AMETHYST: Amethyst is one of the most beautiful and well-loved minerals. It is the purple variety of the mineral Quartz due to deposits of manganese and iron. Amethyst occurs as natural crystalline clusters, cathedrals (volcanic gas tube formations or geodes), and may be carved into many different shapes such hearts and angels (our favorites). Other varieties appear such as beautiful Black Amethyst (contains more manganese to appear deeper in color), Green Amethyst (often heat treated but ours are naturally heated by the earth) and Pink Amethyst (rose quartz and amethyst combined). Although Amethyst can be found in many locations, we typically source our sacred specimens directly from Brazil, Bolivia, and Uruguay.
Spiritual Properties: Amethyst is the stone of ultimate spirituality, contentment, opens your third eye for meditation, developing intuition, enhancing creativity, energetic amplifier of intention which helps in manifesting anything in one’s life, & connects you with the divine. Black Amethyst opens the 3rd eye as well as offers psychic protection, grounding, and rejuvenation. Green Amethyst opens the heart as well as the 3rd eye to allow one to merge the two for heart-centered spiritual clarity. Pink Amethyst opens the high heart (over the lungs between the heart & throat chakras) as well as the 3rd eye to merge the two for compassionate, spiritual wisdom.
