Amethyst – the “Good Vibes” crystal
Amethyst was already known to the ancient Romans as a protective stone and, with its bright violet color, is one of the most popular and powerful crystals on our planet. A classic that belongs in every gemstone collection.
The effect of amethyst
This beautiful, purple stone has a magical appeal that hardly anyone can resist - amethyst is a stone that most people feel intuitively drawn to. Its power is liberating and protective: Amethyst dissolves negative energies, it is your personal "Good Vibes Stone". With the amethyst at your side, your positive thoughts will start rolling, indirectly clearing the way for your creativity and intuition. The amethyst also fills rooms with its powerful aura, place it in your living or working area.
Amethyst in all shapes and colors
Amethyst gets its violet color from the iron content in the soil where it was found. That is why we find light to pastel violet specimens in Brazil and deep violet, almost black clusters in Uruguay. Each color variant of the amethyst is beautiful in its own way. The dark purple amethysts from Uruguay have a strong and intense aura, while our delicate pink-purple geodes have a lovely energy. Chevron amethyst runs through a delicate pattern, while black amethyst fascinates with its almost black color. Let your intuition guide you in your choice.
As beautiful as this rosy to deep purple stone is, its beauty can be fleeting if not cared for properly. The amethyst can be discharged and cleansed under running water or in an incense ritual, but it should only be charged in moonlight. Because strong sunlight can fade the stone for a long time. Keep it in a place where the sun does not shine directly on the crystal. However, in a bright room without direct sunlight on the amethyst, you don't need to worry - it takes many decades for the gemstone to gradually fade.
In our online shop you will find a selection of handpicked amethysts. We love amethyst in its natural form, as a geode or druse - but amethyst also shows its intense beauty as a tumbled stone, ball or ground tip.
