Obtain Greater Wisdom | Improve Self-Expression | Increase Mental Clarity | Connect Deeper with Your Higher Consciousness
Amethyst is the gemstone of Wisdom. Its energy enlivens the nervous system and crown chakra, opening greater flow of energy data from the higher mind to the physical body. Amethyst carries the purple ray of energy, which helps remind the physical and subtle bodies of its original spiritual design. By vitalizing the crown chakra, most associated with intuition, you become more aligned with your spiritual blueprint.

Chakra Benefits: Crown Chakra
Each chakra experiencing the energy flow from the crown chakra gains a level of intuition. The consciousness of that chakra becomes more attuned to its original blueprint; the mind chakra experiences increased clarity and intuition, the throat chakra sees an improvement of self-expression, and the heart undergoes emotional resolve and balance from extremes.
The chakra’s energy field increases with intuitive energy, as the gemstone is continuously worn, resulting in past detrimental energetic conditions to be transformed into healthier, more positive ones. Amethyst and the purple ray have a profound and unique ability to awaken the intuition of the chakras it passes through. When Amethyst is worn for long periods, the chakras begin resonating with the frequency of the Soul or highest self.
Amethyst is the gemstone carrier of the purple ray. This energy promotes a connection to higher truth and wisdom by strengthening the crown chakra and nervous system. Its ability to enhance and support the nervous system allows the body to handle the increased energy flow among chakras harmoniously. Because Amethyst initiates a powerful flow of energy between the crown and heart chakra, a wearer of Amethyst will experience new levels of harmony, wisdom, and clarity associated with that chakra. When an Amethyst necklace is placed on specific parts of the body located near a chakra, healing will result.
If Amethyst is placed near the heart, energy is sent from the crown to the heart center, helping soothe and balance the emotions while giving greater clarity and wisdom to the area’s consciousness. If Amethyst is placed near the throat chakra, the body’s source of expression, energy is sent directly from the crown to the throat chakra. Often the energy of the throat chakra is blocked, resulting in problems associated with self-expression, such as stuttering or fear of public speaking. Once Amethyst clears the throat chakra of blocked energy, you will be able to communicate with greater confidence, clarity, and wisdom.
Amethysts' intuitive effects on the chakras help the physical and subtle bodies recognize past circumstances causing illness and disharmony. This new intuition and clarity help the body surrender old energetic programs that hinder the growth and wellbeing of each chakra and the body as a whole.
Amethyst has a silica oxide chemical composition and is the purple variety of the mineral Quartz. The mineral compounds of iron and manganese primarily cause its purple color. Interestingly, most Citrine on the market, (the yellow variety of Quartz), is created by heating low quality Amethyst. On the Mohs scale Amethyst has a hardness of 7 and is one of the most valuable varieties of Quartz.

The most common treatment for Amethyst is heat treatment.
Synthetic Quartz is abundant in the jewelry and gemstone industry. Synthetic purple Quartz is primarily used to imitate natural Amethyst. Purple glass is also common imitation of Amethyst. Although synthetic and imitation purple Quartz can look similar to natural Amethyst, they will have perfect color and flawless clarity even in larger stones, and contain no color zoning, (a natural occurrence in Amethyst created during the growth of the crystal.) One way to test if your amethyst is synthetic or imitation is to look at the gemstone under a 10x magnification loupe or microscope. If you do not see any minute color zoning or inclusions it is likely not natural Amethyst. The best way ensure you are working with only natural therapeutic grade Amethyst is to purchase your gemstones from a reputable supplier with a graduate gemologist on staff.
The color of Amethyst varies in from pale to dark purple. The highest therapeutic quality Amethyst, has a strong purple color with medium-to-medium dark tone and saturation. If Amethyst is too dark and reduces brightness, or if the gemstone is too pale and diluted, therapeutic quality is greatly weakened. High-quality Amethyst has a clarity that is eye clean, with no visible inclusions, meaning they are unable to be seen with the naked. The highest quality Amethyst is free of all inclusions, even under a microscope. Exterior blemishes such as nicks, scratches, and abrasions, or internal inclusions such as cloudiness, color zoning, or fractures also dramatically reduce its therapeutic effects. Most importantly, therapeutic quality amethyst must not have undergone any treatments such as dye or heat. Amethyst is frequently heated to lighten the color of dark material or to remove brownish inclusions.
Amethyst with the above therapeutic criteria containing deep purple of illuminating brightness with no inclusions is extraordinarily rare. Gemstone rough of that quality is reserved for only the highest facet-grade gemstones and is even seldom seen among gemstone traders and wholesalers.
Gemaceuticals is proud to offer Amethyst of these extraordinary criteria, the highest quality precious Amethyst in rondel necklace form on the planet. This incredibly rare African Amethyst is best known for its highly saturated deep purple color. Although often containing more inclusions than Amethyst found in other countries, such as Brazil, this rare material has near flawless clarity, even under magnification. In all my years of gemological education, a lifetime therapeutic gemstone research, and recent explorations abroad, I was able to find the purest Amethyst rough I have ever seen. The therapeutic grade of this Amethyst sets a new benchmark for therapeutic gemstone quality.

Proper care and cleansing practices are vital to the health of your Gemaceuticals™ gemstones and crystals. Your gemstones are energetic tools, and the more you wear and use them, the more aware you need to be of their proper cleansing methods. Some gemstones need special care, but all can be cleansed by the applications of the universal cleansing methods listed below.
Salt has been used for thousands of years as an energetic tool for cleansing. There is a very unique attribute to salt that cleanses and absorbs the energy in its environment. Its ability to energetically "reset" and absorb the negative or build-up of energy of a gemstone and its non-invasive nature, makes it the first and primary cleansing method you should use on all of your crystals. Laying your gemstones in a bowl of salt near your bed, or on a salt block is ideal. Replace the salt every few weeks or as needed.
The energy of plants and nature, (even house plants), has also a powerful healing and energetically nourishing reset. Laying your gemstones on a house plant, indoor moss, or on top of its soil, is a way for the natural nourishing energies of the Earth to assist with the cleansing of your gems. This can also assist in cleansing the gems when they have been affected by radiation or x-rays. You may rest your gemstone on an outdoor plant, however, dependent on the gemstone, it should not be laid out in the sun for longer than 30 minutes at a time as solar radiation can alter the color and therapeutic effects of certain gemstones.
Sun cleansing clears, energizes and revitalizes your gemstone. Place your gemstone directly on the energy of the Earth and allow it to absorb the sunshine for 5 to 20 minutes. Your gemstone should not be laid out in the sun for longer than 30 minutes at a time because solar radiation can alter the color and therapeutic effects of certain gemstones.
Water cleansing is a practical and desirable way to quickly cleanse your gemstones of dirt and oils they have accrued during regular wear. Place gemstones in warm and cold water interchangeably for 15-30 seconds. Small amounts of very mild natural soap may be used on occasion. Gently pat dry with a soft clean cloth. Gemstones that should AVOID water cleansing: Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Sodalight, Indigo, Mother of Pearl, Turquoise, Chrysocolla, Azurite.
