A Bit About Amethyst

A Bit About Amethyst

History & Science

Amethyst is a variety of quartz, generally ranging from pale lilac to deep, reddish purple. As with other varieties of quartz, amethyst owes its color to irradiation from surrounding rocks as well as impurities of iron and other trace minerals.

Metaphysical Properties

We could fill a book with the positive properties that are attributed to amethyst, but at its root, amethyst is a stone of peace, calm, and unification. Although many stones really shouldn't be kept in the bedroom or other places of rest and relaxation, amethyst is a perfect addition to the bedside table, meditation space, study area, or anywhere that peace of mind, calm of heart, and unity of spirit are needed- that is to say, pretty much anywhere! Together, these attributes bring clarity, positivity, and when needed, rest.
