Amethyst is a variety of quartz with a higher iron content which gives the crystal it's distinctive purple colour. Banded amethyst, cape amethyst, or chevron amethyst may have lines of clear, to white chalcedony running through the crystal.
The main Canadian source of amethyst is near Thunder Bay, Ontario but most of our amethyst is sourced from Brazil. Amethyst is the official gemstone for the province of Ontario.
The sphere represents completion, the realization of all possibilities. To carve a sphere one must cut away a mass of rock which can be as much as ten times the finished creation. Thus a sphere symbolizes all that we need to release in order to reach our goals and attain perfection.
Many use a sphere while meditating as they believe it helps to release worry and may help to take them to a deeper state. A sphere is also the perfect centerpiece for a crystal arrangement or rock altar. In feng shui, the ancient art of creating optimal energy flow in an environment, a sphere is ideal to place in the center of a room for its balancing abilities.
Amethyst stimulates the Third Eye, Crown and Etheric Chakras, enhancing motivation, thought and the development of intuition and psychic ability. Amethyst is also believed to have a relaxing effect, easing stress, balancing mood swings and having a sobering effect on addictions.
