CRYSTAL SPOTLIGHT: AMETHYST
Amethyst is a violet crystal of the quartz family. It gets its color from irradiation, iron impurities, and other trace elements. European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection and they believed that amethyst could heal and protect.
Many amethyst crystals come from geodes which grow amethyst crystals within them. The photo on the right is a piece of one of these geodes, with the amethyst crystals growing on the inner side.
Amethyst is the birthstone of February and the stone of the planet Jupiter. Its chakras are the Third Eye Chakra, as well as the Crown Chakra. Amethyst is a powerful protective stone which relieves strain and stress.
