Expertly polished around the sparkliest amethyst and quartz druzy pockets by fairly paid artisans in Brazil, each one of these amazing towers is completely unique and one of a kind! These are portals to another world and dimension – beautiful altar tools to remind you that there is more to life than the mundane. Sometimes mysterious, sometimes dramatic, each of these hand-picked pieces is full of energetic depth, and the polished form gives you a glimpse of how the crystal forms from every direction. Even the backs of these towers are absolutely fascinating and beautiful!
Each of these beauties is completely unique, so you will never see two that are alike. While some have clear quartz crystal, and others have amethyst, the silicate (quartz) is growing with and against Agate, giving these pieces a two-toned energetic fingerprint – sometimes three, or more, including the mineral inclusions within! Read more about the metaphysical properties Amethyst and Agate below.
You will receive the exact carved Amethyst and Agate geode tower crystal pictured. It measures 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide, and has a stunning sparkly cave that runs right through the whole tower!
Agate is the name given to banded chalcedony, a member of the quartz family and found all over the world. Agate is found in literally every color of the rainbow imaginable, so it’s highly unlikely to find two identical pieces – they are all so unique! Metaphysically, agate is a softer vibration stone, and is highly regarded for its harmonizing and strengthening properties. Historically, it’s a stone of strength and stability – it’s grounding in a warm way, and incredibly protective. These pieces make wonderful travel or meditation stones, or to carry in a purse, travel bag, or car! It’s great to ease anxiety, stress, and release resentments. Agate is also a wonderful stone for children, as it has a very soft and subtle energy, but is still stabilizing and strengthening. It helps give one courage and dispel fears.
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.
ABOUT THE TOWER SHAPE
The tower, obelisk, or generator carved shape is potent crystal magic, pulling energy upwards from source and directing it in the direction the point is facing. Here are wonderful points as th center points for crystal grids, candle magic and alchemy, and other spiritual rituals. They’re simply gorgeous, sparkly crystal statement pieces as well, and look beautiful in any home as decor!
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.
