Amethyst

Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation, impurities of iron and in some cases other transition metals, and the presence of other trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions. Amethyst occurs in primary hues from a light lavender or pale violet color, to a deep purple color. Amethyst may exhibit one or both secondary hues, red and blue.

Brazil is the leader in overall production of Amethyst, but high-quality amethyst deposits are in Uruguay. In fact, the Amethyst from Uruguay has a deep purple color. They are typically found in Geodes which crystals reach dark purple of high saturation. On our shop you can find only the best selection of Uruguay Amethyst.

One of the most well-known stories concerning Amethyst goes as follows. Bacchus, the Greek God of Wine, was obsessing over the beautiful maiden Amethyste. He pursued her, chasing her far and wide. Not wanting to become his prey, Amethyste called out to the Goddess of Chastity, Diana, for help. To protect her, Diana turned the maiden into a pure white quartz statue. Humiliated by her sacrifice, Bacchus poured an offering of his grape wine onto the stone, staining Amethyste a glorious purple color. Because of its connection with Bacchus, many say amethyst protects the wearer from drunkenness by inducing sobriety. Amethyst is also associated with spirituality and it is still called the bishop's gemstone in the Roman Catholic Church and is worn by the highest ranks of the clergy. Furthermore, it is ranked among the precious stones of the bible and was one of the gems used in the foundation of the New Jerusalem.

Amethyst geode has the property to collect positive energy in an interior. It can be placed in the house or in the office to offset negative energy and spread good energy to the people in and out. Use an amethyst geode to clear crystals and jewels simply by placing one or more crystals on the amethyst crystal points inside the amethyst geode or amethyst cave.
