In Greek mythology, a young woman was turned into a clear crystal rock and was dyed purple from the spilled wine and tears of the god of wine and revelry, Dionysus. According to the myth, Amethyst is believed to guard against drunkenness. It is said that Amethyst has sobering powers and instills a serious mind.
In many cultures, Amethyst is believed to relieve stress and is recommended for those who work excessively. It is a stone that brings peace, calms fears and raises hope. It imparts tranquility and wisdom.
Amethyst is often gifted to those who deal with a lot of stress at work or are unable to relax. It is thought to be a natural stress reliever, encouraging inner peace and strength while bringing wealth and success to those in business.
You are viewing photos of the exact specimen available for purchase. The druze base measures roughly 1-3/4" x 2-1/2" at its widest points and features naturally shaped, rich purple crystal points radiating out of the geode base. This piece has delicate crystal points, some of which have small black flecking or inclusions within the stones.
An important note about purchasing crystal specimens: The process of mining the specimen and cleaving it into smaller pieces for sale is quite abrasive and will invariably damage, chip, or loosen the crystals. You may find that the crystal points have chips or damage, or that a section of the cluster is white from crushed crystals, or that even smaller crystals may be dislodged from the base. This is normal and to be expected when purchasing any crystal cluster specimen. These pieces are beautiful, but not perfect. We hope you enjoy them just as much as we do, complete with their imperfections.
