Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz that owes its color to gamma irradiation & iron impurities. Amethyst crystals like these grow in cavity spaces within rocks. The more space they have, the larger they can grow. Typically the bulk of the purple color is located right beneath the tip, but sometimes you can find crystals that are saturated pretty evenly. Black amethyst gets its color from inclusions of Hematite.
This is probably my favorite mineral in our collection at the moment. Not to pick favorites... I personally love the different striations of of the amethyst & how it sparkles under the light. it is just an amazing piece. I am in love!
Metaphysically used to enhance spiritual awareness & to promote a higher consciousness, Amethyst works with your Third Eye Chakra to balance vision & intuition. Great for meditation and providing a calming energy in general. Black amethyst is especially used to prevent psychic attacks, protect the aura, & provide a natural pain releiver(do not consume).
