Amethyst Stalactites or Amethyst Flower


Years ago I saw someone wearing an Amethyst Flower. I literally became obsessed wanting and needing one for myself.  I finally found one at a gemshow tradeshow that I shop at twice a year when it comes to town.  It's a huge show. I was hoping I could find one there. I found a not so very interesting one that year.  Never did anything with it.  The next year there were a few more at the show and I got to pick a couple of nice ones.  The following year I found my baby.  It's the one on the home page of the site.  I have a really deep relationship with it and wear it as often as I can.  The others went to their humans as well.  I'm still so obsessed with them I will have at least one in my studio.  I sell them everytime I make one. They are just that fabulous.

Let me tell you a little about them. They are found only in Uraguay. The geode that is an amethyst sometimes will grow something I call a branch on the inside, where the crystals are.  It's an amethyst covered outcropping that's long and thin, just like a branch.  It's exquisite! How it is formed is

mineral rich water drips from the roof of a cave. Slowly but surely these minerals precipitate out and build the diameter of the stalactite. Over time the minerals being brought by the ground water may change, showing up as color changes in the concentric rings that form around the outside of the stalactite. Most of these start out with an agate center that then builds amethyst crystals around the exterior diameter. Amethyst is purple quartz and you normally see a combination of both the clear and purple crystals.

 What happens next is the branch is cut off and then sliced so you have a cross veiw of the gemstone as opposed to the inside of the geode.  All around the outside are crystal points.

A protective stone with a high spiritual vibration. Guards against psychic attacks transmuting the energy into love. A natural tranquilizer. Blocks negative environment energies. Amethyst has strong healing and cleansing powers and enhances spriitual awareness. This stone facilitates the decision making process, bringing in common sense and spiritual insights, putting decisions and insights into practice.
