Amethyst, the birthstone for Aquarius/February is personally my favourite crystal. It’s very versatile and has many uses. Large chunks or churches look great as a centre piece or stand-alone ornament, so you can feel its soothing energy throughout your home. Smaller pieces, or crystal chips, can be worn as jewellery and it can also be used for healing and meditations.
