History & Origin:
Amethyst is a common variety of purple Quartz that comes from the Greek word “Amethystos,” which translates to “not intoxicated.” From its association with Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, to its heavenly significance in Revelations, it is fair to say this beautiful violet crystal has captured the attention of humankind for centuries. This magical violet stone contains trace amounts of iron & is usually found in the fractures & cavities of igneous rocks as geodes. Currently, most of the world's supply of Amethyst comes out South America, particularly Uruguay & Brazil, although it can be found across the world. Whilst dark coloured stones are usually the most valuable, some stunning varieties of lavender Amethyst have emerged out of Vera Cruz, Mexico. Brandberg Amethyst, which is blend of Amethyst, Clear & Smoky Quartz, from Namibia, Africa, is also highly sought after. Amethyst is the birthstone of February as well as the 33rd wedding anniversary gem.
Amethyst is an excellent & powerful all-purpose stone that eases stress, removes negativity & enhances intuitive abilities.
