Amethyst - is a variety of quartz and has a deep purple color. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities. Amethyst is a “stone of spirituality and contentment”, and has strong healing and cleansing powers. It is a natural tranquilizer and deepens meditation.
Disclaimer: Some stones are known to change color over time. This can happen after a long exposure to the sun; we advise you not to expose the stone under the sun for a long period of time. The other reason that a stone can fade or change color is after intense usage of it's energetic properties. When you use the stone for a specific issue, it's possible that the stone has done its job and that both you and the stone are ready to move to the next phase in life. We suggest to offer the stone to the elements (ocean, sea, river, under the ground).
