Amethyst is arguably the most popular mineral known to man. Many people are familiar with the beauty of its purple hues. Amethyst is a variation of quartz that contains trace amounts of iron. When the mineral is exposed to radioactive gamma rays, it is irradiated, producing the purple color we know and love. The saturation of the amethyst depends on the amount of iron present. 

Amethyst is a near-perfect health stone. It is used for relieving nightmares and insomnia. It enhances focus in both meditation and protection from psychic attacks. Amethyst is often used to help soothe the nervous system.
