Metaphysical African Amethyst Crystals


Powerful African Amethyst CrystalsAmethyst is a bright to dark or dull purple-colored variety of crystallized quartz and a semi-precious stone. Quartz is a crystal that contains very high vibrations through the rock and is therefore one of the most popular crystals that are chosen by people trying to increase their psychic ability. 

The world's largest deposits of amethysts on the African continent are found in Namibia, Zambia, and Morocco. Zambia in southern Africa has the highest annual production of amethyst crystallized quartz. The best, highest quality amethyst is considered the amethyst from Russia. The deeper and more intense is the purple color of the amethyst, the higher is the price and Russian amethyst has the deepest color on earth.

Amethyst is believed to develop spiritual powers as well as having the ability to cleanse the aura and purify your soul. The crystal also guards against drunkenness creating a sober mind. The ancient Egyptians used amethyst as a cut stone to make jewelry for protection against poisonous elements and against the metaphysical seen and unseen world.
