If exposed to sunlight or excessive heat for long periods of time the colour of amethyst will fade.
Without being illuminated this dark purple stone looks almost black. As light is introduced its true magnificence becomes apparent.
Our first three photos were taken using studio lighting whilst the fourth was taken in front of a sunny window.
When used for its metaphysical properties amethyst aids spirituality and contentment. It clears the aura and brings stability, strength and peace. It may be used for meditation for its calming and peaceful energies.
