NATURAL Pink Amethyst GEODE // Cracked Geode // Choique Mine, Pehuenches - Neuquén Argentina // Cleansing, Clearing, Mystery, Purity
We’re absolutely thrilled to bring you a gorgeous collection of Pink Amethyst, each piece hand-picked, many considered “extra” quality - the best of the best! We were able to match up several halves of these clusters and recreate the full geode! Please see each individual listing for details on each piece.
Channeling that which is hidden, the mysterious, the mystical, concealing the purity of the past, Geodes are magical feats of Mother Nature. Formed in bubble pockets of hardened volcanic rock, geodes are created when minerals seep into the bubble, creating the hard outer shell. This traps the right conditions of moisture and minerals to grow crystals within. The word Geode comes from the Greek "shape of the earth", and indeed these beautiful miraculous formations are like little worlds, holding hidden worlds within! Geodes that are fully enclosed and encase crystals, such as these, are called "nodules." These gorgeous druze quartz crystal filled geode nodules can take hundreds of millions of years to form!
Metaphysically speaking, Geodes hold the purity, innocence, and history of our past. They are time capsules of traumatic and destructive earth energy that occurred a very long time ago; they are "scabs," healed wounds, and beautiful creations from hot, powerful energy. Geodes are incredibly cleansing and purifying: many people love to recharge and cleanse other crystals by placing in the cavity of a geode! They are constantly working to recycle and redistribute energy in your space, raising the vibration to something deeply earthy and rooted, while highly mysterious and ethereal at the same time.
Geodes are soothing, destressing and maternal in nature. Some believe they hold powerful feminine energy, due to the "womb like" cavity and receptive, nurturing abilities. This feels particularly true when you gaze within one and can only wonder about its complexities, its history and the pain it has endured. Geodes have stable energy, solid, and are incredibly reassuring, despite their crumbling exterior matrix rock! They hold the mystery of the divine, and help us reveal that which is hidden, about our inner selves, our spiritual work, and our psychic nature.

There's a saying with essential oil enthusiasts: when in doubt, use lavender. Well, it's the same with crystal lovers and rock hounds. When in doubt, use AMETHYST! (And isn't it funny that they both present to us in shades of purple?). I've yet to meet a person who didn't love amethyst. It is a classic stone, and one of the oldest crystals to work with humans. The varying purple hues are absolutely enchanting and the crystals are always glassy and glittery. Even if you're not in it for the metaphysical properties, just having amethyst in your home enhancing the beauty and attracts awe and love.
Amethyst ranges in shades from lavender, rose and lilac to deep, rich grape (called 'grape jelly') . It most commonly forms in clusters or in geodes. The metaphysical properties of amethyst are plenty: it's best known for being a calming stone (great to keep in the bedroom) that encourages sobriety - the Ancient Greeks revered the stone for this reason, and it's name comes from the Greek "ametusthos" meaning "not intoxicated." Today, crystal healers and rock lovers use it as an all purpose stone. It's soothing, relieves stress, and promotes love, peace, tranquility and ease. It is highly spiritual as well, tapping into the Crown Chakra, and helping us find wisdom, hone our inner voice and sharpen our intuition. It is one of the few stones that I will definitely have in the bedroom, for its soothing, calming effect which aids sleep (for some, it can enhance dreams, too). It is an incredibly healing stone, especially on an emotional level. You can't go wrong with having amethyst in your home, wearing it on your person, or carrying in a medicine bag. It's another stone with highly spiritual attributes that is connected with the higher chakras, enhancing intuitive and psychic abilities, and connecting us with the spiritual realms.
**Please note: Amethyst's vibrant purple color can fade when left in direct sunlight for long periods of time. Please bear this in mind as you find a spot to place your amethyst.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
