Purple Amethyst is a semi-precious stone which was known as a “gem of fire” to ancient people. It is reported to carry energy and signifies passion and creativity. It is used to control evil thoughts and used as a powerful tool in enhancing psychic energy. I love using it when creating my burning bowls because of the power it brings to ceremonies.

For those of you who have just tuned into my blog, my burning bowls are used in a ceremony that I first heard about at Unity church. On New Year's Eve, the members write on paper anything they would like to have leave their lives. Examples would be to quit smoking, drinking, eating..you get the idea. The folded paper is then placed into the bowl and burned along with the problem. It's a belief system of course. I decided long ago to create personal burning bowls. Who knows, if you believe strongly in something, miracles can happen.

Amethyst Woman, which is the second in my Amethyst series, is approximately 5” wide x 5” deep x 13” high. I used beautiful crystal and amethyst on her crown. She is an original made from stoneware clay and fired in my kiln to a high temperature allowing the stained glass basin to form a hard surface used for burning. When you are not having a ceremony. She can be used to burn a candle or incense.
If you are interested in purchasing her, please just e-mail me and we can go from there. I take Paypal or personal checks. Thank you so much for viewing.
