Just in from the Tucson gem show! Amethyst spheres are a crystal classic; no collection is complete without them. But at the Crystal Lion, we only pick the most unique and most beautiful for you, even of the essentials!
These AAA quality natural Brazilian Amethyst spheres truly took my breath away! Spheres are magical, powerful tools of sacred geometry – and highly regarded and beloved crystal shapes in the metaphysical world. When a gemstone is polished into a sphere, its properties are radiated outwards equally in all directions, filling your space from corner to corner with its healing properties. They’re irreplaceable crystals for meditation, for communal spaces, as the centerpiece of crystal grids, and to impart the stone’s properties where you want them to go.
These incredible crystal spheres are divine – there’s simply no other word to describe them. Each piece of natural amethyst has been expertly carved into a perfect sphere, by our fairly paid partners in Brazil. Each one is 100% completely NATURAL and totally unique. You will never see two exactly the same!

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. It is a classic stone, and one of the oldest crystals to work with humans. 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 can fade when left in direct sunlight for long periods of time. 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.
