Amethyst Properties

 Amethyst is an incredibly beautiful crystal and is very popular amongst anyone who works with crystals for spiritual reasons. Amethyst is purple quartz. It is quartz that has formed in the presence of manganese which creates the lovely purple hue. Normally it is quite clear and may have inclusions, rainbows and/ or clouding within the crystal. It's beautiful color makes it a very popular choice for jewelry. Amethyst can be a very pale clear purple or a very deep almost black. When it forms naturally, it may have a blend of other crystals with it such as ametrine (amethyst and citrine).

Amethyst Appearance and Form

Amethyst is readily available in many forms and price ranges. Most often, you will find it in small tumbled stones or natural crystal points (shown below). However, amethyst can also be found in clusters, geodes and cathedrals. The small tumbled crystals are very inexpensive and can be found for less than a dollar. The cathedrals are huge hollow geodes that are filled with thousands of little amethyst points. (pictured above). These can run into thousands and thousands of dollars as they are treasured by gem collectors.
