Amethysts are among the most attractive of all gemstones. They make wonderful gifts for anyone you care about, and are a wonderful addition to any home. It’s hard to think of anything better than to receive a beautiful blue gemstone, wrapped lovingly around a lovely gift. You just don’t know how to describe it!
There are several species of amethysts. Most are in the Quartz family. This includes such lovely varieties as quartz, amethyst, citrine, sapphire, ametrine, and quartz. Amethyst is most often classified by the color range, or colors which it takes on. The Greek word for this stone is “amethustos” which means “not drunken.”
The therapeutical use of amethysts is still being researched, but there is much evidence that they can have positive affects. For instance, the German mineraloids boron and ferric citrate have been found to have amethyst-like qualities when used as a natural laxative. Because the stones contain a chemical known as tannic acid, it does cause some bad effects in the digestive system. It can cause nausea and diarrhea. The bad effect is usually temporary, though, so using them in moderation may be beneficial to those with certain types of digestion problems.
Treatment with anxiety relieving stones may also have some bad effects. The stone is highly reactive when exposed to air, heat, or light. It is difficult to even cut it because of its sharp edges. Even a small increase in temperature can cause the crystals to expand and take on a shape that is unrecognizable. When doctors attempt to remove them, the crystals usually do not dissolve.
There are many types of amethysts. The most valuable and beautiful ones are known as “mithochronic amethysts.” These crystals are made from quartz, but the quartz is positively charged and will help enhance the clarity and vibrational quality of the crystal. They are used for healing purposes and for bringing about stability and clarity of mind and body.
One type of amethysts is the “semi permanent” variety. This type of crystal is slightly toxic, but it has no known negative effects. It’s important to be very careful with semi permanent amethysts. People must take care not to place the crystals in their mouths. People who are allergic to quartz should avoid using semi permanent amethysts.
There are many other varieties of the gemstone, each with its own different metaphysical properties and healing powers. The price ranges for each type of gemstone are from one hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. The more rarer a stone is, the more expensive the stone will be. The most valuable of all gemstones, however, is the diamond.
A popular myth is that the amethyst stone is actually a synthetic creation. In actuality, the amethyst stone belongs to quartz, which is classified as a synthetic stone. Amethyst has been falsely linked to other gemstones, such as rubies or emeralds. A synthetic stone does not have the same metaphysical properties as a natural stone. The amethyst stone can be safely worn by all age classes. Its beauty is timeless, and it will never go out of style.
Geodes and amethysts are also closely related. Geodes are the dried up remains of organic materials, such as leaves. Geodes are made from calcite, dolomite, magnetite, sulfates, and even gold. The crystals from these geodes are also sometimes mistaken for amethysts, but they are not geodes. These geodes are not used for gemstones, but they are interesting to look at. The crystals have different shapes, colors, and sizes, and they can be found all over the world.
The most common synthetic gemstone is titanium. Titanium is a metal that can be shaped into any shape, including needles, pearls, and crystals. It has long been used as an anoderm, which is a type of healing property that causes the skin to heal. This healing property can be transferred to synthetic gemstones, which can be crafted into beautiful pieces. One such purple gemstone is titanium.
Another synthetic gemstone that can be crafted into a purple colour is quartz. This stone comes in a wide variety of colours and each colour has its own unique property. In addition to being highly durable, quartz is also transparent. This makes it a popular addition to jewelry.
Amethyst and quartz crystals are some of the most beautiful, durable, and transparent stones around. They have many of the same metaphysical properties as other natural stones. The colours and aromas are similar to other naturally occurring stones. The properties of amethyst and quartz crystals allow them to have healing properties. Some of these properties include being able to induce relaxation, have a calming effect on the nervous system, and be an excellent conductor of negative energy.
