Separate article on Red Capped Amethyst and Hematite Amethyst

Geological/Historical Information

  • A member of the quartz family with iron in its crystal lattice being naturally irradiated to FE4+ creating purple colour, hence why the colour is uneven. Read more: geological information and more here.
  • Special article: "My experiences with Amethyst" for more geological and metaphysical insights.
  • Note: As the colour of amethyst is caused by iron-based colour centres, iron minerals are often companions of amethyst. Of those three, goethite, lepidocrocite, and hematite frequently occur as inclusions. If large amounts of FE3+ and FE4+ both exist in a piece you have citrine + amethyst which is called Ametrine.
  • Amethyst comes in some wonderful structures: points and double terminators; elestials; fairy amethyst (very small druzy crystals emerging from the side of the main point); spirit  amethyst (side points are more visible to the naked eye); cactus or pineapple amethyst (like spirit amethyst but the side points are quite large e.g.5-20% of the size of the main termination); flowers, rosettes and angel wings.

Special Notes

  • Points are good for individual healing. Caves and clusters are good for a space.
  • CARE - amethyst fades in the sun

Additional Properties of Varieties



Auralite-23 Amethyst
  • Chevron Amethyst with other inclusions combination from Canada's sacred "Cave of Wonders" north of Lake Superior within the Boreal Forest of the Canadian Shield..
Grounding, Centring, Stabilising
  • "Auralite-23 connects to it's keeper like a twin spirit. A stone that reads into its keeper's spirit, searching and highlight that which could be improved and that which can benefit from healing or clearance. It will then give support and help to light the way to sources that can be of benefit once it has completed its search. It helps to remove feelings of burden and stress and also tones down anger and cools hot tempers."  Heaven & Earth card.
  • Auralite-23 balances all chakras.
  • Can sedate the mind allowing more profound healing, deep meditation, enhanced metaphysical abilities, and connection to higher dimensions.

Geological/Historical Information

    • Not to be confused with geological mineral Auralite which has little information about it either. Auralite-23 is a trademark of Robert Simmons and geologists refute all the information being given in this section by the "channelling" of Robert. They believe it to just be an amethyst variation.
    • "Scientifically proven as the world's oldest crystal - developed more than 1.5 billion years ago." Note: I personally disagree with this assertion also.
    • "Made up of at least 17 of the following 23 healing stones:
    • Titanite, Cacoxenite, Lepidocrosite, Ajoite, Hematite, Magnetite, Pyrite, Goethite, Pyrolusite, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Nickel, Copper, Iron, Rutile, Limonite, Sphalerite, Covellite, Chalcopyrite, Gialite, Epidote, Bornite"

    • Place on a chakra serves to release the tensions held there and to energise the areas, which may be static.

Special Note

    • Being layers of amethyst growing on each other (sometimes interspersed with clear quartz and smoky quartz layers) it is great for "going down the layers" to step you down the levels of an issue being faced till you resolve i like phantoms.
    • Or seeing it as layers "growing " on layers so work with as imagery of your own evolution - build foundation then the first level then the second level then the roof - clearing your blocks to building you "home" aka YOU.
    • I think the Bended Amethyst is from the Chinese mis-hearing "Banded Amethyst".
