Black Amethyst #61
Black Amethyst is similar to Purple Amethyst in that it aids both emotional and spiritual healing and provides a very peaceful energy, however Black Amethyst adds more psychic protection into the mix due to the increased iron inclusion, it creates a protective shield around the physical body and aura. This is also what makes the colour so dark. Black Amethyst helps you open your mind to spiritual guidance while also keeping you grounded, an ideal stone to sit with in meditation.
Sometimes in Amethyst you will find white pieces attached, this is calcite and occurs naturally.
