This shard of amethyst quartz was delicately wrapped with copper wire, half hard silver filled wire, and silver colored copper wire.


It was crafted by a local MN artist and could be attached to a necklace, suitcase, backpack or anything creative (as long as its reasonable) you can think of. If you know what you're doing you can even make hardstone carvings or engravings in them.

"Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek a- ("not") and μέθυστος methustos ("intoxicated"), a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. It is one of several forms of quartz. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February."


"Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) and owes its violet color to irradiation, iron impurities (in some cases in conjunction with transition element impurities), and the presence of trace elements, which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.[1][2][3] The hardness of the mineral is the same as quartz, thus it is suitable for use in jewelry."


"The ideal grade is called "Deep Siberian" and has a primary purple hue of around 75–80%, with 15–20% blue and (depending on the light source) red secondary hues."


"The color of amethyst has been demonstrated to result from substitution by irradiation of trivalent iron (Fe3+) for silicon in the structure,[3][5] in the presence of trace elements of large ionic radius,[2] and, to a certain extent, the amethyst color can naturally result from displacement of transition elements even if the iron concentration is low."


"Amethyst can fade in tone if overexposed to light sources and can be artificially darkened with adequate irradiation."


"The Greeks believed amethyst gems could prevent intoxication,[8] while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle in the belief that amethysts heal people and keep them cool-headed."


"Collectors look for depth of color, possibly with red flashes if cut conventionally.[20] As amethyst is readily available in large structures the value of the gem is not primarily defined by carat weight, this is different to most gemstones where the carat weight exponentially increases the value of the stone. The biggest factor in the value of amethyst is the colour displayed."


These following quotes are from this page: "" under the same liscence from above.



"Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's continental crust, after feldspar. It is made up of a continuous framework of SiO4 siliconoxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra, giving an overall formula SiO2.


There are many different varieties of quartz, several of which are semi-precious gemstones. Especially in Europe and the Middle East, varieties of quartz have been since antiquity the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hardstone carvings."


"Naturally occurring quartz crystals of extremely high purity, necessary for the crucibles and other equipment used for growing silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry, are expensive and rare."


Quartz can split light into a spectrum but the effect is not prominent.


"Quartz crystals have piezoelectric properties; they develop an electric potential upon the application of mechanical stress. An early use of this property of quartz crystals was in phonograph pickups. One of the most common piezoelectric uses of quartz today is as a crystal oscillator. The quartz clock is a familiar device using the mineral.


Many shamans know that quartz is capable of producing light when rubbed or struck. It may also develop an electric potential when exposed to heat and certain kinds of radiation due to a pyroelectric effect. There are many folk uses of quartz crystals like crystal healing, crystal acupuncture/pressure, and making elixirs. There are too many systems in the human body of an electrical nature to count.


Some claim that quartz can improve fuel economy. Only a handfull of people have ever tested that theory under high control of other variables but generally the results of such studies tend to indicate that the results are negligable if any. Still, there are those who claim that the negligible amounts of gas saved add up into dollars during a persons lifetime. However, we are not aware of any incontrovertible proof that quartz can or cannot have an effect on fuel economy. Also, it is not reccomended to tinker with the parts of a vehicle. But if the quartz did have any effect supposedly the effect is greatest when the quartz is near the fuel line or gas tank but use extreme caution and good judgment because quartz can develop an electric potential under conditions such as heat or pressure changes and may inadvertently ignite fuel in a chaotic and detrimental manner. The proposed method of fuel enhancement is ionization of the fuel. Because of quartzs properties like pyroelectricity it is supposed that quartz can produce sufficient radiation to ionize fuel and more energy is then released in the form of very hot gasses when the fuel is burnt. After searching around the internet to see if quartz is really capable of producing ionizing radiation (which isnt always good for human health although people seem to momentarily survive the X-Ray machine) I decided that I have no idea if quartz is capable of producing X or Gamma Rays (ionizing rays). I wish more people would study this and clearly define whether quartz has that property or not. Interstingly enough a device called the quartz fiber dosimeter is used to detect ionizing radiation. It seems the ionizing radiation causes a physical movement of the quartz crystal due to positive and negative charges attracting and repelling each other in relation to the other materials in the device. Other claims include that quartz can produce an electromagnetic field which aligns the fuel molecules so that they burn more efficiently allowing less unburnt fuel to pass in the exhaust. We are aware that the theories have proponents both for and against their scientific viability but we are not aware of any incontrovertable proof that any of these statements are either true or untrue.

"Crystal healing is a pseudoscientific[1] alternative medicine technique that employs stones and crystals as healing tools."


"One method is where the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras, or places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an "energy grid", which is purported to surround the client with healing energy.[2]"


"Practitioners select the colours of stones and place them on parts of the body. Stones are placed at the feet or held in the hands. Practitioners sometimes use crystal wands, which are placed near the receiver's body. Colour selection and placement of stones are done according to concepts of grounding, chakras or energy grids."


"There is no scientific basis for the concepts of "chakras", being "blocked" or "energy grids" requiring "grounding" being anything other than terms ascribed by the adherents to misleadingly lend credibility to their practices. Energy as a scientific term is a very well-defined concept that is readily measurable and it bears little resemblance to the conception of energy given by proponents of crystal healing."


Of course I would add that scientists do not know everything and there is much that is not understood about quantum mechanics and on another note quartz does supposedly manifest energy due to its pyroelectric effect although I have been unable to verify whether quartz really has a pyroelectric effect. Sadly, it does not seem that enough research has been done on that subject either and I checked multiple encyclopedias.


I have heard from various sources that the human body runs on very small voltages between 10 and 100 milivolts and micro amps as well. These may seem like very small and mild forms of electricity but they are extremely vital to human health. I have heard it mentioned that the brain runs on 20 watts; and the heart runs on about 13 watts producing about 1.3 watts of mechanical energy because the heart is about 10% efficient. Based on this information I have no idea whether quartz could have an effect on humans but in my own practice I can feel a pulse when two small quartz spheres are held between the fingers of opposite hands and moved far apart from each other and then drawn very close together in the center while breathing. I suspect this was probably generated by my own body heat or bio-electric current. It does not feel anything like a placebo effect I felt it on a physical level, it felt a little like magnets held near each other but way less pulling and more of simply a vibration or current. Still though my experience is just that and isn't necessarily absolute scientific fact.

"Placebo effects are subject of recent scientific research aiming to understand underlying neurobiological mechanisms of action in pain relief, immunosupression, Parkinson disease and depression.[8] Brain imaging techniques show that placebo can have real, measurable effect on physiological changes in the brain.[9] The objective physiological changes have been reported, from changes in heart rate and blood pressure to chemical activity in the brain, in cases involving pain, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and some symptoms of Parkinson’s, but in other cases, like asthma, the effect is purely subjective, when the patient reports improvement despite no objective change in the underlying condition.[10]


Placebos are widely used in medical research and medicine,[11] and the placebo effect is a pervasive phenomenon;[11] in fact, it is part of the response to any active medical intervention.[12] Archie Cochrane suggested in 1972[13] "It is important to distinguish the very respectable, conscious use of placebos. The effect of placebos has been shown by randomized controlled trials to be very large. Their use in the correct place is to be encouraged […]"


"The placebo effect points to the importance of perception and the brain's role in physical health. However, the use of placebos as treatment in clinical medicine (as opposed to laboratory research) is ethically problematic as it introduces deception and dishonesty into the doctor-patient relationship.[14] The United Kingdom Parliamentary Committee on Science and Technology has stated that: "...prescribing placebos... usually relies on some degree of patient deception" and "prescribing pure placebos is bad medicine. Their effect is unreliable and unpredictable and cannot form the sole basis of any treatment on the NHS."[6]"


And from here: with the same liscence:


"Quantum mechanics (QM – also known as quantum physics, or quantum theory) is a branch of physics which deals with physical phenomena at nanoscopic scales where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the quantum realm of atomic and subatomic length scales. Quantum mechanics provides a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. Quantum mechanics provides a substantially useful framework for many features of the modern periodic table of elements including the behavior of atoms during chemical bonding and has played a significant role in the development of many modern technologies.

In advanced topics of quantum mechanics, some of these behaviors are macroscopic (see macroscopic quantum phenomena) and emerge at only extreme (i.e., very low or very high) energies or temperatures (such as in the use of superconducting magnets). For example, the angular momentum of an electron bound to an atom or molecule is quantized. In contrast, the angular momentum of an unbound electron is not quantized. In the context of quantum mechanics, the wave–particle duality of energy and matter and the uncertainty principle provide a unified view of the behavior of photons, electrons, and other atomic-scale objects.

The mathematical formulations of quantum mechanics are abstract. A mathematical function, the wavefunction, provides information about the probability amplitude of position, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle. Mathematical manipulations of the wavefunction usually involve bra–ket notation which requires an understanding of complex numbers and linear functionals. The wavefunction formulation treats the particle as a quantum harmonic oscillator, and the mathematics is akin to that describing acoustic resonance. Many of the results of quantum mechanics are not easily visualized in terms of classical mechanics. For instance, in a quantum mechanical model the lowest energy state of a system, the ground state, is non-zero as opposed to a more "traditional" ground state with zero kinetic energy (all particles at rest). Instead of a traditional static, unchanging zero energy state, quantum mechanics allows for far more dynamic, chaotic possibilities, according to John Wheeler.

The earliest versions of quantum mechanics were formulated in the first decade of the 20th century. About this time, the atomic theory and the corpuscular theory of light (as updated by Einstein)[1] first came to be widely accepted as scientific fact; these latter theories can be viewed as quantum theories of matter and electromagnetic radiation, respectively."


"By 1930, quantum mechanics had been further unified and formalized by the work of David Hilbert, Paul Dirac and John von Neumann[2] with a greater emphasis placed on measurement in quantum mechanics, the statistical nature of our knowledge of reality, and philosophical speculation about the role of the observer." "Much 19th-century physics has been re-evaluated as the "classical limit" of quantum mechanics and its more advanced developments in terms of quantum field theory, string theory, and speculative quantum gravity theories.

It would be very difficult for a scientist to determine what, if any effect a crystal might have on a human.


Code Blue: This item should not be in the reach of children. It is a choking hazard. It also has a number of properties when exposed to electricity and could conduct electricity as well as heat up, produce varying amounts of radiation, or explode upon contact with electricity all of which would be hazardous to to anything in the vicinity. The same hazards could be seen with conditions of extreme heat, mechanical stress, or both it can also become electrically charged under those conditions. So simpy do not expose it to extreme heat, or mechanical stress. And do not expose it to electricty other than your own bio-electricity.


If the item is attached to a necklace made of hemp or any other material it can be an asphyxiation and entanglement hazard as well. Also, dont wear this amethyst while in a vehicle. Incidents and airbags could press the crystal hard against a persons body causing physical trauma. You should not wear the amethyst while sleeping, sporting, or at any time where there is potential for the item to cause trauma.


To purchase you must accept the risks and liability associated with the use of and/or storage of the item however serious they may be. You are also accepting the risks and liability of transferring or sharing the item to or with other people or life forms however serious those risks and liabilities may be.
