Our beautiful Amethyst clusters come from the Parana basalt formation, which is located in the Rio Grande do Sul region of Brazil. These specimens are of a very nice quality, and can range in color from a medium lavender to a deep purple.
The metaphysical properties of Amethyst is primarily emotional and mental healing. It can be held (or worn) to help calm and soothe the mind and emotions. Amethyst is also associated with the Crown Chakra (due to it's high vibration), and is used extensively in the Reiki healing arts.
The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue!
