In metaphysics, fengshui and energy healing, amythyst is considered a magical stone. It's a popular, but rare form of quartz and a semi precious gem stone that offers many health benefits. They come in the various shades of purple - deep or light purple, violet, bluish purple. Amethyst in it's purest form is colorless. Fine amethyst will be transparent without any inclusions, allowing light to pass through unhindered. The amethyst found in market have mostly undergone a heat process, which gives them the purple colour or hue. Purple is considered a royal color and the color of spirituality. I have seen amethyst stones at various Gift shops in UK. While I was at Stratford Upon Avon, I had visited a shop called Mystic Dimensions, where they had every healing and semi precious stone possible including amyethyst. In Kuwait, they are available in the Scientific Center Gift Shop.
