These beautiful cross-sections of Amethyst and Agates are a rare combination. Each slice varies in size, but on average they range from the the size of a 25¢ coin to a 50¢ half dollar coin. No two are alike!

A member of the Quartz family, Amethyst has a trigonal crystal system and has been found and used throughout the world for centuries. Neolithic Europeans and Ancient Egyptians both used amethyst regularly, and early Greek and Romans considered it of high value. It has previously been used to make beads, amulets, and more often used in crowns, scepters, and rings for royalty and bishops, as amethyst was viewed as a jewel of royalty.

The name Amethyst comes from the a Greek word for "not drunken" and was believed by ancient Greeks to prevent intoxication, calm anger, and relieve frustration born of passion. It's generally considered a stone that aids in protection, purification, and connecting to the Divine. Amethyst is also a crystal that channels the element of wind, and helps activate the Third Eye (6th), Crown (7th), Etheric (8th + Beyond) chakras.

***Stalactite Amethysts are a rare combination and are named after the limestone deposits in cave formations. However, they do not form the same way. It’s formed when a tube agate forms in the center of an agate or amethyst. As the chemical composition of the ground water which fills the cavity where the amethyst is forming changes, the color and the denseness of the core rings change. Once the agate center has formed, the amethyst crystals grow on the outside surface. What you see is a cross section slice of that formation!
