Deep Purple Amethyst Crystals
Amethyst crystals with rich purple colour, meticulously chosen locally in South Africa.
The colour of amethyst which can vary from purple to violet is caused primarily by impurities of iron. Manganese also helps to determine the final shade and depth of colour and other geological processes including heat and pressure also play a part.
Amethyst is the geological name for the purple variety of the mineral quartz. These translucent crystals can appear to be a little dark due to the rich saturation of colour but once held up towards the light a magical transformation takes place.
Birthstone for the month of February, amethyst is a popular gemstone with a history dating back thousands of years. Stones can be faceted or be shaped as cabochons and tumbled crystals are widely used in holistic therapies such as reiki and crystal healing. When used for metaphysical purposes amethyst is said to be a stone of spirituality and contentment which clears the aura and brings stability, strength and infinite peace. It's a perfect companion for meditation due to its calming and peaceful energies and brings with it serenity, composure and an innate ability to manage responsibilities effectively.
