Agate with very light amethyst on stand from Brazil
what is amethyst
Amethyst is a purple variant of quartz and owes its typical purple color to the presence of iron, which is colored purple by the ionizing radiation (or radioactive radiation) from the earth.
Amethyst protects and purifies, gives you insight, strength and helps you to control addictions.
Agate is a variant of quartz and a sub-variety of chalcedony, which can be either cloudy or translucent. The colorful, striped stones are seen as semi-precious stones.
For happiness and healing
Traditionally, agate was worn as a lucky stone or for healing. For example, many amulets and necklaces are made of agate, but also consumables such as buttons.
Agate has a medicinal effect, such as protection during pregnancy, against headaches, skin disorders and balance disorders. Agate is also a grounding, stabilizing and protective stone. Inner peace is promoted for a calm and sober attitude.
