Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz that owes its color to gamma irradiation and iron impurities. Amethyst crystals like these grow in cavity spaces within rocks. The more space they have, the larger they can grow. Amethyst crystals that have lighter and paler hues are known as "Pink Amethyst."
Amethyst is believed to help relieve stress and balance the emotions. This is known as a protective stone in the metaphysical world, assisting with blocking negative energy and even warding off nightmares. This Pink Amethyst specimen is beautiful and has plenty of smaller, dazzling crystals throughout.
