The ultimate gemstone for spirituality and meditation!
Prized for its vivid colour and unmistakable beauty, amethyst is certainly not rare but is still highly sought after in good quality and/or unique formations.
One of the most loved and well known coloured gemstones amongst crystal lovers, amethyst is the purple variety of quartz which has adorned Kings and Queens for eons but is also an affordable gemstone for us mere mortals. Whether purple is your colour or not, there is something mystical and wondrous about amethyst especially when it is seen in its plethora of fascinating formations.
Throughout the history of time amethyst has been referred to as a magical and powerful stone, in folklore, mythology and even the Bible. Most interestingly the ancient Greeks believed this stone protected its owner from drunkenness and often carved drinking vessels out of this purple mineral to prevent intoxication. Today this mineral is known as the stone for meditation and spirituality, a calming crystal for the body and mind.
