Each one, uniquely shaped by nature, their shells lined with thousands of purple amethyst crystals. Only one place on earth are these highest quality amethyst mineral specimen geodes found-in Brazil. These wonders that have taken nature millions of years to create, started out as a gas bubble from a Magmatic flow. In the following epoch, ground water would slowly permeate the cavity, depositing its dissolved mineral deposits, slow enough for the dissolved minerals to assemble into their unique crystal form In the case of the Rio Grande do sol region of Brazil, the circumstances of that environment were very special because of the silicon and iron/manganese minerals present. The geode cavities were to be filled with the amethyst crystal, possessing a deep, beautiful purple tone. Perhaps nowhere on earth is a more beautiful geode created. A crystal is a mineral that has formed into a geometric pattern. A quartz crystal displaying violet color tones is considered amethyst. The amethyst crystal forms a six-sided hexagonal prism ending usually into a very defined point. All crystals vibrate at their own frequency, and some people are sensitive enough to feel these vibrations. Sometimes a quartz crystal may give off rapid pulses of energy. During the middle ages, the amethyst's beauty and rarity made it more valuable than diamonds, often worn in rings of kings and queens. Amethyst was traditionally believed to protect the bearer from intoxication and excess physical passion. In ancient Rome, a gift of amethyst from wives to their husbands would guarantee his love and fidelity. Today, amethyst crystals and geodes are considered to have power to stimulate people into being more creative and mentally alert. An amethyst crystal could ensure your working environment with stimulations, creativity, and stress relief.
