Amethyst is one of the most popular stones on the market. It seems to be everyone's favorite, what with its rich purple color. It's a stone of calming and soothing energy. It is said to prevent intoxication and can be used by recovering alcoholics to assist them in fighting their addiction. Amethyst is readily available. Most of it comes from Brazil, where huge crystals are found. I have seen pieces taller than I am, weighing close to a thousand lbs. This is a must stone for your gemstone altar.
I have made a very good gemstone connection here in Cassadaga with Reverend Tina. She has all kinds of metaphysical items as well as stones. Check out her website at www.cgreen.us
She has the best prices I have come across.
