Lightly polished chevron amethyst with one flat side so that it can if required, be used as a massage wand. This subtly translucent stone which has striking colour and markings was individually chosen during one of our many trips to South Africa.
One thing definitely worth remembering about all kinds of amethyst is that it fades or changes colour if exposed to heat or UV light for any length of time. If using crystals for their metaphysical properties and your want to recharge them, do not be tempted to leave amethyst in the sun because the stone will eventually lose colour. Depending on the temperature or brightness, some crystals can change colour in as little as an hour. On the same note, amethyst shouldn't be placed on a sunny window sill or close to a source of heat.
