This is a nice piece of Chevron Amethyst from Brazil which has been Semi-Polished. So it is a rough piece of crystal with a Point cut into it & polished, but it also still has sections of rough, unpolished crystal visible.

Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification. It can be an aid to curbing overindulgence and giving up bad habits. It can be used to assist one in quitting smoking, drinking or drug use.
It stimulates the crown chakra and is an aid to meditation, helping one to still one’s thoughts and move into higher states of consciousness. It can clear one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments, and can thereby facilitate the creation of an energetic “shield”—a field of spiritual Light around the body that wards off the negativity in one’s environment.
Amethyst can bring the feeling that one is surrounded and protected by a “bubble of Light” If one is ill, placing an Amethyst specimen in one’s room can help keep one’s healing space clear.
Wearing Amethyst maintains the inner space of one’s body and energy field in a state of balance and well-being.
