Amethyst is a member of the quartz mineral family that is distinguishable by its purple color. Historically, this gemstone was reserved for royalty, but today it is used widely as home and office décor and jewelry. Amethyst Geode Lamps, as seen in this collection, are the perfect example; these are made from Uruguayan amethyst clusters or Morrocan amethyst slabs and hold one or more candle wicks that reflect off of the  crystals underneath. 

Amethyst is the birthstone for Pisces and the month of February, the gemstone for the 6th and 33rd anniversaries of marriage, and a very important and powerful metaphysical and healing semi-precious gem.
