Amethyst reminds us to always treat body and mind as a sacred temple. A stone of protection, it creates an ultraviolet bubble of protective light around people and spaces, and it’s very helpful for insomnia and nightmares. A stone of transcendence, Amethyst heightens psychic powers, and will strengthen your connection to all things mystical and magical. Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for February and a zodiac birthstone for Aquarius and Pisces.
The combination of both Amethyst and stalactites is very rare and found in only a few places in the world. They have a core of interestingly shaped and colored agate surrounded by crystalline amethyst in varied hues of purple.
The Amethyst stalactites are named after similar occurrences of limestone deposits in cave formations. Stalactites form as water laden with calcium carbonate drips from the roof of caves. As the dripping continues, layers of calcite are deposited in rings and over time they settle on top of each other creating the stalactite.
The Amethyst “stalactite” is neither a limestone nor a cave formation but, rather, a tube agate that forms in the center of an agate/amethyst vug within a hydrothermal igneous formation. As the chemical composition of the ground water which fills the cavity changes, the color and the denseness of the core rings change correspondingly. Once the agate center has formed then the Amethyst crystals grow on the outside surface.
Stalactites are cross cut into slices to expose both the agate center and surrounding purple crystals.
