History of amethyst crystals
Amethyst has been known and used for centuries.
It’s name comes from the Greek word for intoxicated. Both the ancient Greeks and Romans used amethyst to cure them of drunkeness!
This crystal is commonly found worldwide – including North and South America, Africa, Asia, and even New Zealand.
The most commonly known variant of amethyst is a lavender to deep purple, sometimes varying in colour from white to purple across the stone.
It also comes in other colours, including pink, smokey, purple white banded Chevron amethyst and even a green amethyst.

Care for amethyst crystals
Like all crystals, smokey quartz needs to be energetically cleansed after it has done it’s work.
To keep your crystals in top condition:
- Make sure you keep them free of dust and debris
- Storing them on selenite will help to keep them energetically clean
- Put your crystal under the moonlight at full moon – this will help to re-charge its energies.
