Of the violet variety

I just came back from my geology lab where we had to identify minerals. While the scientific part of geology isn't really my thing, appreciating a nice mineral is. Amethyst is one of my favorite stones and here is a little info on it...

Amethyst is essentially quartz with a purple hue. It is a stone of psychic awareness that has a calming and protective aura. It has been used to help with:

-       attracting love and happiness.
-       energizing your crown chakra
-       psychic protection
-       any kind of divination
-       meditation
-       pain of arthritis or headache
-       overcoming addiction
-       treating insomnia and nightmares
-       neutralizing negative energy

Pearl, key, & wire wrapped raw amethyst necklace. By ME
