Feeling (attracted to the colour) purple?


Majestic purple and violet embody the balance of stimulating reds and calming blues so the undertone is crucial as to whether the hues uplift or soothe the mind. With its distinct flair of mystique it promotes spirituality and wisdom.


Born in the scientific purple.
~George Howard Darwin
(astronomer & mathematician, 1845-1912)

Amethyst is a mighty protective stone; it encourages selflessness, spiritual awareness & psychic abilities.  It stimulates the mind & helps the wearer to find focus. This crystal strengthens the immune system, eases headaches & releases tension.


—  With reigning gentle kings in mind

Our spiritual Wisdom & inner peace is invoked by nature’s purple coloured gemstones through transformation.
