Amethyst: Translucent Spirit Crystal

Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. Used as a gemstone by the ancient Egyptians, amethysts have been found in the tombs of pharaohs and inside tombs of ancient Babylonian kings. The crystals often appear as a cluster of pyramids growing from a geode base. Rare smoky amethysts exhibit ghostly filaments of pale violet inside pale smoky quartz crystal. Apart from the larger crystals taken from the massive geodes, small amethyst crystal clusters and tall prismatic amethyst crystals are common. Phantom quartz shapes can also appear inside the crystal structure. Amethysts are found in abundance around the world from Brazil to Mexico, Uruguay, Zambia, Europe as well as North America.

The alluring violet amethyst is in many ways the king and queen of crystals with its perfectly balanced male/female beyond duality appearance. In many ways the amethyst is the divine crystal. Live with one for a few days and its strangely elusive spirit nature will become apparent.

Although the Elves love all crystals (especially rubies, emeralds and diamonds), there is a special relationship for the amethyst alone. As beautiful and pristine as it is, these crystals will disappear from your awareness and appear to inhabit a sub-space world all of their own, until you suddenly notice their presence and their beauty again after a few weeks or months.

The whole point of the amethyst is that they are mostly of the spirit world. Clear quartz, citrines and smoky quartz are very much here with us on Earth, as their manifestation is more closely associated with the creation and upholding of physical matter (space). The alluring amethyst inhabits the space of other invisible realms, and holding it in your hand wont change that fact.

The amethyst will not transport you to the magical realms and it wont send you visions or guidance. This alone imparts the inner wisdom that you are already capable of stepping beyond the illusions of physical time-space, without any help. The amethyst simply reminds you where you came from.

Note: It is never a good idea to take knowledge of stones and crystals from an outside source. The wisdom of the ancients came from a direct working relationship with the crystal beings or with the stone beings, as though interacting with an Earth intelligence operating system. In truth, the information each of us seeks can only come from the source. If a crystal or a stone will not share information, then reading what others have written will not change the person seeking knowledge. Crystals are not loaded with information waiting to be unloaded into the mind. Crystals are mirrors that connect the individual with themselves, and this is why they are such powerful tools. They do not give you anything other than what you give yourself. They do not show you anything other than what you show to yourself. That is the beauty of working with crystals. - Crystal Light-Seeds
