This Oval Amethyst gemstone is 1.25" long, 1" wide and .75" deep. Because this gemstone is so deep, the faceting works overtime to refract and reflect light, making this gemstone exceptionally brilliant. Most large cut and faceted gemstones of this size are nowhere near this deep, so they cannot reflect as much light as this beauty!

For mineral collectors and connoisseurs of fine gems, amethyst is the most highly prized member of the quartz family. Gemstone quality amethyst is quite rare, and extremely valuable. Only the very best gemstones are highly faceted, the rest are sold as "rough" specimens.

I have recently discovered the incredible power of highly faceted crystal gemstones for meditation and vibrational healing. Although natural crystals have always been my favorite, I began to use Vogel cut crystals in my Reiki healing practice and my interest in faceted crystals led me to experiment with crystal gemstones.

The number of facets, the intricacy of the design, the mastery of the cutter the quality of the materials used, and other factors, all contribute to the difficulty of crystal gemstones. The power of polished, highly faceted gemstones for healing and meditation has been documented in the Hindu Vedic and Western alchemical traditions for millennia, and what I have discovered is that there is a special magic to crystal gemstones, just as there is to highly faceted diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

Try a crystal gemstone in meditation or in energy healing sessions. Hold it in your hand, keep it on your bedside table or altar or computer workstation, and experience the inner fire of crystal gemstones for yourself! Our experience is that highly faceted crystal gemstones have a powerful energy. Usually crystal gemstones are produced from the highest grade of crystal available and they also are designed to be as luminous and reflective as possible, increasing their ability to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy in meditation and healing sessions.

Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Amethyst

Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz crystal. Increments of iron within the crystal as it formed vary the color of the amethyst, which ranges from pale lilac to deep purple. Amethyst has been popular with royalty, sages, mystics and magicians for centuries.

Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty, as well as being featured elements in the fabled breastplate of the High Priest in the Old Testament and gemstones traditionally placed in rings of ranking members of the Roman Catholic Church.

Amethyst is also prized by Lightworkers and crystal healers for its unique energetic properties and its powerful and beneficial effects on mind, body and aura.

Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind.

Amethyst works to open and energize the crown chakra, associated with the colors violet, gold and white in the Western mystery school tradition. Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind.

Rose de France amethyst combines the traditional spiritual properties of amethyst with the healing properties of the Rosy Ray, which is associated with the heart chakra in the Western mystery school tradition.

Working on the heart, the fourth chakra, Rose de France amethyst works to transmute heartache, heartbreak and the deleterious effects of anger we have experienced in our lives, into the energy of unconditional love, healing the wounds we have suffered in our emotional body.

Rose de France amethyst also empowers us and strengthens us by its energizing effect on the heart chakra, giving us the strength and courage we need to allow our selves to open our hearts fully and experience the compassion known by Jesus and Buddha , the joy and sorrow that accompany the awareness of the interdependence of all living beings.

Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence. “Because amethyst was thought to encourage celibacy and symbolize piety, amethyst was very important in the ornamentation of Catholic and other churches in the Middle Ages. It was, in particular, considered to be the stone of bishops and they still often wear amethyst rings,” continues the website of Independent Certified Gemologists and Appraisers. “In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are often fashioned from it.”

Because amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.

We use amethyst to ward off psychic interference and for spiritual cleansing.

This amethyst gemstone is the perfect size to fit in the palm of the hand during meditation, or even when giving Reiki treatments. An energy healer could also place this gemstone on the body of a client, careful not to place it where it might fall off.

Because amethyst is a relatively hard gemstone, this amethyst can be safely carried in the pocket in its own pouch, which we provide free of charge. It is difficult to scratch amethyst, but care should be taken not to put the stone into one's pocket unprotected along with car keys or other metal objects. Amethyst can be placed in the sun for very short periods to charge the stone, but care should be taken not to overexpose the stone to sunlight over time, to prevent any fading. Alternatively, the stone can be placed outside in moonlight to absorb Universal Life Force Energy.

My personal experience in using this stone for meditation and in Reiki healing sessions has been excellent. In meditation, this beautiful gemstone fits easily in the palm of the left hand, the receiving hand, and facilitates a connection to the Source of Universal Life Force Energy. I felt a very high frequency energy signature stimulating and opening the chakras in my hands, and then a flow of this same violet ray energy streaming up my arm and into my torso, solar plexus and "hara" center. My felt connection with my Guides and Teachers strengthened appreciably. I felt above all, a taste of the peace that "passeth understanding".

Used in Reiki sessions, the stone is very effective in helping agitated clients relax completely, refreshing and energizing them at the same time. Energy healers can hold the hand in the palm while directing energy to the recipient or just place the gemstone in the recipient's hand or on their body during the treatment.

The energy signature of this gorgeous Rose de France amethyst gem is every bit as profound and refined as its color and meticulously faceted features.
