Banded Amethyst Healing Properties

These Banded Amethyst have rich colors and clear patterns. Many of them are Chevron Amethyst with V shaped bands, while others have stripes. These are tumbled stones have funky irregular shapes, mostly long and skinny. They are perfect pocket stones and would look great in a crystal grid. Banded Amethyst is particularly recommended for reiki workers, since it offers the high energy of Amethyst, amplified by the gentle healing of Snow Quartz.

Ethically Sourced Banded Amethyst

Know where your crystals come from

This Banded Amethyst comes from a small-scale Amethyst mine in Namibia. The exact deposit is unknown, but it is liked in the Goboboseb mountain range.  Most Amethyst mining occurs underground and has a low environmental impact.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Banded Amethyst Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2014  •  Updated October 2022  •  Read Time: 8 minutes
Banded Amethyst, also known as Chevron Amethyst and Dogtooth Amethyst, is a lovely crystal which combines the powerful peace of purple Amethyst with the amplifying powers of Quartz.  If some parts of the crystal are translucent, it may have stripes of Amethyst, Clear Quartz and/or Snow Quartz.  If the crystal is fully opaque, then it will only be Amethyst and Snow Quartz.  The bands can be straight lines or sharp peaks, depending on how the crystal grew.  Banded Amethyst’s energy is a little bit more gentle than pure Amethyst.  It helps us feel safe and cozy while we step into our power and take on a greater spiritual awareness.
