Black amethyst is a type of quartz rock that is popular among collectors.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz which occurs either in crystalline or massive form. It’s produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz, while additional amounts of iron content vary the purple colouration.
The deepest coloured black amethyst rocks occur in crystals from Uruguay, Siberia, Africa, Colorado and India.
Among many collectors, amethyst is thought to represent spirituality and contentment, enabling the transmutation of lower energies into the higher frequencies of both the spiritual and ethereal levels.
The rocks balance the energies of the intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies between the Earth plane and the other worlds.
Healing and soothing energies are among the qualities of black amethyst rocks.
