Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and is known to be a balancing & clearing stone. It is said that it can help facilitate the transmission of lower frequency into higher energies & opens up the Third Eye & Crown chakras - perfect for meditation. Emotionally, it is thought to help one find the root of their causes behind certain thought patterns or behaviors such as addictions. Throughout ancient history it has been used to promote sobriety. When it comes to sleep, energy healers believe it can help with insomnia & recalling dreams. Amethyst is purple in color due to irradiation inside the earth, impurities of iron and in some cases other transition metals, and the presence of other trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattices.
This gorgeous pieces of earth came from Brazil where they were mined and polished just around the front, around the crystal formations. It weighs just over 2lbs (2lbs 5oz) and measure about 5 x 4 x 3 inches. It features a wide range of hues with an iron red stripe towards the left and some beautiful gray crystals in the top right, I also love the very top how it is polished showing the amethyst color too.
