My birthstone! Amethyst is a semi-precious stone and is a member of the quartz family. Amethyst is a stone of spirituality. Amethyst inspires creativity, relaxation and peace. It is a wonderful meditation tool.
Earth geodes are created when gasses become trapped in the layers of rock - usually volcanic rocks. Crystalline structures form on the inside, surrounded by harder minerals - for example amethyst surrounded by agate.
