What is Amethyst?
Amethyst, the purple variety of quartz, has a rich history dating back thousands of years. It has been prized for its beauty and used as a decorative stone since ancient times. In fact, it was highly regarded by royalty and is often associated with nobility and luxury.
The gemstone is also the birthstone for February, making it a popular choice for jewelry during that month. Amethyst's stunning purple color can vary from light shades to deep reddish hues, adding to its allure. Additionally, with a Mohs hardness rating of 7, amethyst is a durable stone that is resistant to breaking.
How does Amethyst Crystal form?
Amethyst Crystal can occur in nature and grows as crystals in geodes. It develops its purple color as it grows into natural amethyst crystals. Traces of iron combine with the Quartz crystal and are irradiated to produce the purple hue.
Natural geodes take millions of years to form. So to meet market demands, Amethyst crystals are grown in the lab.
What are the different forms of Amethyst and what are they used for?
Tumbled stones - Small and meticulously polished pieces used for jewelry making, crafts, decoration, and crystal healing.
Raw chips and chunks - Amethyst in its natural rough state. Also used in creating jewelry pieces, craft making, decorations, as well as grids and zen gardens. They are also used as materials for making tumbled stones.
Crystal clusters - A group of Amethyst crystals that formed or grew together, such as an amethyst cluster. They can grow on the surface of rocks or minerals or along the interior cavity of a geode. Clusters, like the amethyst cluster, are generally used in crystal healing or as decorations.
Raw or polished amethyst points (generators) - The sharp pinnacles or ends of a crystal. It can either be on one or both sides. In technical terms, crystal points are called ‘terminations.’ Typically used as energy tools in crystal rituals and meditation.
Bracelets and necklaces - Accessories worn to carry the beauty and healing power of Amethyst wherever you go.
Pendulum - Amethyst fashioned into a circular or pointed object and is attached at the end of a metal chain. Pendulums swing back and forth or in a circular motion when held or hung from a fixed point. Used to tap into intuitive powers, seek divine guidance, and balance the energies of the mind, body, and spirit.
What are some pointers for choosing the best Amethyst Crystal?
The most important factors to consider when buying Amethyst, such as purple amethyst, are color, clarity, and size. Many people like their Amethyst crystals to be reddish to deep purple in color, without any mineral inclusions. Sizing is important because crystals are often sold per weight. But it's just the size of the pieces, the size of the crystals is also important, the bigger the single crystal the rarer it is and the more expensive it is
But take note that the standard of beauty for stones and crystals can be purely subjective. There are Amethysts that have a lighter shade with minor inclusions, but that doesn’t mean they’re less beautiful than dark-colored ones. It all comes down to personal preference.
How much does Amethyst cost?
The cost of amethyst can vary depending on factors such as quality, size, and origin. Generally, smaller amethyst stones can be found for a few dollars, while larger and higher-quality specimens can be more expensive.
