Amethyst is a common variety of quartz with a presence of iron that has been exposed to natural radiation to give it a violet to rich purple color. It is found all around the world with significant deposits in Brazil, Uruguay, and Canada. Some of the finest amethyst in the world comes from Vera Cruz Mexico and the Brandberg mountains in South Africa. Amethyst is photosensitive and should not be overly exposed to sunlight as the purple color can fade from the UV radiation.
Amethyst is thought to be calming and balancing. It is wonderful for peaceful sleeps and good dreams. It can protect one from unwanted outside energies and purify the aura or home with its violet frequency. It is thought to encourage sobriety as the name comes from ancient Greece where it was thought to prevent the effects of alcohol or drunkenness.
