RAW Amethyst is ethically and sustainably sourced from Thunder Bay, Canada, just north of Lake Superior. World famous for its distinctive, ancient Amethyst crystals, the mine has been family owned and operated for the past 50 years where the gems are exclusively and responsibly mined. The rugged, stunning, and wild country of Thunder Bay is known for its severe thunderstorms that roll through. The overwhelming rumble and cracks of the untamed storms can be heard echoing across the bay and throughout the forests, mountains and legendary volcanoes.
Amethyst has been cherished throughout history for its mythical powers. The lure of the Amethyst was valued at times as much as a Diamond. It was called the Gem of Fire, a precious stone, fierce and mystical.
The dazzling purple to violet hues of Amethyst, which is a form of quartz, is owed to gamma irradiation and traces of iron. Amethyst immerses the wearer in serenity, elevating passion, strengthening the imagination. It is the gem of focus and success–for travelers, it was worn as a protection from misadventure.
It is the stone of the dreamer, attracting divine energy, bringing clarity and cleansing the aura of negativity.
Amethyst is the birthstone of February.
