Uruguayan Amethyst Cluster
Amethyst crystal is a variety of quartz, which gives it a crystal trigonal system and hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. Like quartz amethyst is made of silicon dioxide. Its lavender to violet shade is the result of iron and aluminum deposits and natural irradiation.
It is believed in the realm of crystal healing that Amethyst is a protective stone and is linked to the crown chakra, where it helps to purify and cleanse the mind of negative thoughts such as stress and anxiety, while at the same time facilitating prosperity, intuition and communication.
