RARE Vera Cruz Amethyst Crystal Cluster // from Vera Cruz, Mexico // Protection, Spirituality, Health, Abundance, Prosperity, Peace, No.17
Vera Cruz Amethyst is my go-to, crystal grid magic making partner in crime. Rarely does one of my crystal grids function without Vera Cruz; Amethyst itself is a highly versatile crystal, possessing nearly universal metaphysical properties that each of us need at some time or another. But the vibration of Vera Cruz is unlike any other amethyst found around the world; I find that it elevates the work of my crystal grids, no matter their intention. The energy seems to buzz around the other crystals, the candle, the sage, herbs, flowers, or other magical tools that I bring into the working grid. If you've never worked with a crystal grid before, read a bit more about them below!
This is hands down one of the most beautiful finds I have been able to bring you to the shop - and wonderfully accessible prices! Vera Cruz Amethyst is a very rare, highly sought after variety of quartz that is found in only one location in Mexico. It's characterized by its distinct glassy luster and sparkly purple that ranges from lilac to lavender in color. It resonates with the Crown Chakra, as amethyst typically does, and is a highly spiritual and powerful crystal.
You will receive the exact Rare Vera Cruz Amethyst crystal cluster pictured. It measures 2.25 inches long and 1.75 inches wide. This amazing twin has two gorgeous and equally sized crystals rising from the matrix! Over half a dozen other crystals are peppered around the base!
This beauty has the most lovely purple color and lustrous glassy clarity known to Vera Cruz!
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. :)
