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. This piece was found in VeraCruz, Mexico.
The back to back double termination of this piece is absolutely stunning & instantly make it demand a room. It almost looks like a cute little bow tie to me.
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.
