This crystal exhibits a lovely, delicate lavender-purple colour. This is one of a very few of these lovely stones that we have been able to source. Each one is unique and special.Amethyst is the most valuable form of quartz crystal. It has been used since ancient times, both as jewellery and for talismans and amulets, and has been highly prized throughout recorded history. In many cultures, it has a tradition of being used to ward off danger, both physical and spiritual, to protect from harm, and to aid in the cure of a range of afflictions. Healers use amethyst for its purifying, strengthening, calming and balancing properties.
Amethyst can also be used as an aid to meditation, as it is said to clarify inner images and our dreamlife, making it an ideal material for a tool to access intuition and "inner knowing". It is reputed to encourage spiritual wakefulness and give an insight into spiritual reality. It is often kept under the pillow to ward off nightmares and promote peaceful and even psychic dreams.
It can give help in times of sadness and grief and in coming to terms with loss. This item is made of crystal and amethyst, brandberg, 925 silver, sterling, natural.
