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.
These gorgeous piece of earth came from the Alacam mine in Turkey and was left completely in its completely natural state. It has incredible deep purple color that is so sought after with Turkish Amethyst. I love that you can see how it grew on the rock it is on. It weighs 1 lb 2 oz and measures about 5.5 x 4 x 2 inches.
