These are SO COOL!
Vera Cruz amethysts are very rare in that they are exclusively mined in Vera Cruz, Mexico, and are very high quality because of their unique lavender color, clear transparency, inclusions (sometimes enhydros!), and formation. Each point features some form of double termination (complete or incomplete), and many have cathedrals, twins, and scepters! This is an essential stone for any serious crystal collection.

Vera Cruz Amethyst
Origin: Vera Cruz, Mexico
Variety: Member of the quartz family
Mohs Hardness: 7
Chakra: Third Eye, Crown
Magic + Metaphysics: Because Vera Cruz amethyst works at a higher vibration than regular amethyst, it especially helps the third eye, or pineal gland, to connect to our higher selves while helping balance the left an right hemispheres of the brain. Thus, like traditional amethyst, is also facilitates a connection to our spirit guides and balances polarities to find equilibrium in any situation. Amethyst is great for meditation and sleep, and helps overcome addictive tendencies, encourages self control, and calms the nerves and harsh emotions.
Specs: Each stone contains natural double terminated points, and each one is unique. Some will contain cathedrals, twins, and even scepters or an enhydro (if you're lucky)! Size small ranges from 1- 1.5" long x 0.5" wide. Medium ranges from 1.75- 2.5" long x 0.5"+ wide.
