Balances the mind and opens intuition

In nature, Amethyst is formed within the depths of the Earth, where molten rock cools and crystallizes over time. This natural process produces a stunning gem that varies in colour from deep purple to light violet and can be either transparent or translucent. A gem of purest quality that is a beautiful purple with deep bluish-purple highlights and lines, known as tiger lines, which are in fact healed fractures created during the formation of the stones. The colour is rarely uniform and often the crystals show colour patches or colour in straight stripes or angular patterns. This arduous journey of transformation serves as a powerful metaphor for our own personal growth and evolution.  

In the vast realm of gemstones, Amethyst stands as a captivating testament to nature's ability to create something truly extraordinary. With its regal purple hues and mesmerizing crystal formations, Amethyst is not just a gemstone; it is a symbol of transformation, clarity, and spiritual enlightenment. Just as Amethyst emerges from the darkness, we too have the potential to rise above adversity and transform ourselves into something extraordinary. 

The most important sources of Amethyst are in Brazil, Bolivia, India, Madagascar, Namibia, Russia, Sri Lanka, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It is a crystalline purple crystal, growing in the trigonal crystal system and usually growing as hexagonal prisms and often found in geodes, where only the termination of the crystal is purple, and the rest of the material is colourless. Our crystals are either from Brazil, which have a slighter warmer hue to the crystals or from Africa, where they are slightly bluer in colour giving natural variations to our jewellery, but still the same spiritual and holistic benefits.
