Amethyst is a gemstone of the Quartz family, typically getting its color from iron, and most commonly found in geodes.

It’s been an all-time favorite of royalty. Amethyst has always been a calming crystal, a moderator, bringing peace and encouraging clarity and balance. It aids in practical thinking when dreaming and imagining. It forces us to stop, slow down, listen and think. It can also help us see the beauty in things that aren’t so much.

It is an excellent healing stone as well, helping with emotions, balance, self-control and sleep. It calms your mind and helps with anxiety and worry.
