60.7 gram Amethyst Point ft. Hematite Inclusions
Measuring 2.75″ long and 1.5″ wide, this Brazilian amethyst weighs 60.7 grams (a little over 2 ounces) and features a spectacularly deep shade of ultraviolet purple on its rhombohedral face along with red flecks of hematite and aspects of smoky quartz. This specimen’s magnificent colors ombre into clear crystal quartz at the opposite end, combining the mystical aspects of many of this mineral family’s varieties. Hold it like a wand during meditation, add it to the tip of a walking stick, wrap it with wire and use it as the centerpiece of your next masterpiece or just place it nearby for inspiration.
Found in the tombs of pharaohs and on the crowns of kings, amethyst has always been a stone valued by royalty for its purple. A semi-precious stone known to protect its keeper, medieval soldiers in Europe wore amulets made of amethyst into battle. From the Greek amethystos meaning “not drunk,” amethyst dispells negative thinking and promotes clarity aiding in problem-solving and expanding the imagination. Amethyst is a must-have in any crystal collection.
