Crystals 101: Amethyst
I thought it would be a great idea to start sharing information on the healing properties of the crystals and stones that we use to help you on your journey. Whether it’s calmness, a solution for anxiety, or just the fact that you LOVE crystals and their energies they give you, we’ll help you figure out which ones will work for you.
First up in our Crystals 101 series is Amethyst.
This is one of my favourite crystals, it was actually the very first crystal cluster I ever received and I fell in love with it right away.
Amethyst is a type of quartz and it gets its purple colour from iron. The colour varies from pale lilac to dark purple. Amethyst mainly forms in geodes in rock cavities left by volcanic gas bubbles, how cool is that!?
Amethyst is a very well rounded crystal, it balances polarities and helps keep equilibrium in every situation. Amethyst can help you where you need stability and calmness in your life. It can also encourage self-control and helps with meditation and sleep. Wear amethyst when you are having the feelings of anxiety and need the calming and healing energies.
