I search high and low for the most beautiful and unique amethyst stalactite “eyes” for you, because I believe these to be an essential piece of working crystal in the home! Enhancing the already protective energies of amethyst, the Eyes of Amethyst, comprised of agate, basalt, and other matrix rock, are considered incredibly protective. Evil Eyes are said to keep evil spirits and those who wish us harm away, and protect a space, residence, person or family from any ill will. I keep a piece of amethyst with a stalactite “eye” on the shelf right at the front door to our home, along with a few other pieces for protection, to be the ‘watchdogs’ of our house and inhabitants. Along with smoky quartz, everyone should have an Amethyst Eye near their front door!
This listing is for the exact AAA grade Amethyst stalactite “Eye” pictured. It measures 3.2 inches long.
Whether you’re an experienced crystal collector and lightworker, or a newbie to the world of rockhounding, you simply can’t go wrong with Amethyst. It is a classic stone, and it is one of the oldest stones to work with humans. I personally love unique Amethyst formations – crystal flowers, stalactites or agate eyes in the amethyst, and all in deep, dark purples, rosey blush smoky shades, and lavenders – and that is what you will find in my shop!
There’s a saying with essential oil enthusiasts: when in doubt, use lavender. Well, it’s the same with crystal lovers and rock hounds. When in doubt, use AMETHYST! (And isn’t it funny that they both present to us in shades of purple?). I’ve yet to meet a person who didn’t love amethyst. The varying purple hues are absolutely enchanting and the crystals are always glassy and glittery. Even if you’re not in it for the metaphysical properties, just having amethyst in your home enhancing the beauty and attracts awe and love.
Amethyst ranges in shades from lavender, rose and lilac to deep, rich grape (called ‘grape jelly’) . It most commonly forms in clusters or in geodes. The metaphysical properties of amethyst are plenty: it’s best known for being a calming stone (great to keep in the bedroom) that encourages sobriety – the Ancient Greeks revered the stone for this reason, and it’s name comes from the Greek “ametusthos” meaning “not intoxicated.” Today, crystal healers and rock lovers use it as an all purpose stone. It’s soothing, relieves stress, and promotes love, peace, tranquility and ease. It is highly spiritual as well, tapping into the Crown Chakra, and helping us find wisdom, hone our inner voice and sharpen our intuition. It is one of the few stones that I will definitely have in the bedroom, for its soothing, calming effect which aids sleep (for some, it can enhance dreams, too). It is an incredibly healing stone, especially on an emotional level. You can’t go wrong with having amethyst in your home, wearing it on your person, or carrying in a medicine bag. It’s another stone with highly spiritual attributes that is connected with the higher chakras, enhancing intuitive and psychic abilities, and connecting us with the spiritual realms.
**Please note: Amethyst’s vibrant purple color WILL fade if left in direct sunlight for periods of time. I would strongly advise NOT to put your amethyst on a windowsill. Please bear this in mind as you find a spot to place your amethyst.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth and I cannot guarantee them completely. They are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
