Amethyst is a common mineral. Large and clear specimens that are suitable for cutting and further processing as gemstones are limited to comparatively few sites. It occurs in Brazil, Uruguay, Madagascar, Russia and Sri Lanka.
Amethyst crystals are found mainly in cavities in hydrothermal veins and in volcanic rocks. So-called amethyst druses, in which the crystals have formed within a cavity, surrounded by a layer of chalcedony, are also frequently found in the trade.
The most beautiful Druze usually come from Brazil and can be as tall as a man.
The origin of the name from the Greek αμεθυστoς (amethystos) - "counteracting the intoxication" - expresses the old belief that amethyst wearers are immune to the intoxicating effects of wine.
Likewise, wine from an amethyst goblet shouldn't make you drunk. Originally, this (sup) belief arose from the custom of diluting (red) wine with water, which then took on a reddish-purple (amethyst-colored) color. At the same time you could of course drink a lot more of it without getting drunk or even having to suffer a hangover.
The gemstone ball has a diameter of around 3.0 centimeters and fits into all Joya massage products.
