Amethyst Cats, Hand Carved Cat Shapes
This medium sized lovely is one that we think of as a calico or tortie because you'll see every shade of Amethyst! The colors range from pale violet, to violet, to medium purple, to deep purple. Yup, an Amethyst Tortie/Calico with a bit of a mystery mineral for extra special feline vividness and color!!
From the viewpoint of Traditional Chinese Medicine Amethyst which has multiple shades of purple ranging from the pale tones to the deepest are the perfect blend of Yin and Yang. The lighter shades have more Yin. The darker shades have more Yang. This particular piece is in perfect balance of the Yin and Yang - it's about 50/50 with a variety of shades!
How we love the ones that have smooth Agate on the back side and this one feels delightful. Agate is all about inner stability, protection and self confidence. It's also for good luck and good fortune - does that mean that a box of Cat Faeries cat toys are in the near future for your beloved felines? There is a tiny bit of Citrine in this one which adds healing and balancing benefits to the Amethyst. That might be calcite on the cat's tummy or it's the palest of violet.
This medium sized carved cat has a slight curvy telling us that the geode it was carved from was very round. Look closely and you'll see that there's a large amount of Citrine that grew with the Amethyst. We love Citrine because it's a crystal that simply cannot hold onto any form of negativity. It's a happy stone and when you couple that with Amethyst it's powerful and positive which in your home or by your side will lead to particularly lovely results. Because this one was carved on a rounder part of the geode the front feet area is a bit thicker than the back feet and tail area. It's a very special piece! Very one-of-a-kind!
Note: the Citrine doesn't show up well in regular house light. It showed vividly under the professional lights we use to take photos, and it will show beautifully in good sunlight.

About Cat Faeries the hand carved Amethyst cats
Amethyst geodes are mined by a husband and wife from the Artigas region of Uruguay where they also carve. They are paid a good wage for their hard work and of course there is no child or forced labor involved which is exactly what you would expect from Cat Faeries! These carvings of cats are a true labor of love. The Amethyst carvings of domestic cats are an homage to the jaguars and cougars which the jungles of Uruguay is known for. Each cat shape or cat face is unique.
Occasionally Amethyst from Uruguay can have glimmers of red and indigo, iron inclusions, or have Citrine, or Calcite, or clear quartz growing with the Amethyst. Some pieces have very smooth Agate on the underside. And a few of them have some sort of mystery mineral that grew there too. We'll tell you about these additional aspects, in particular when Citrine is present, or when a piece has a smooth Agate underside all of which add to the beauty and uniqueness of each of these carved cats.
Amethyst has a Mohs hardness of 7 which is very very good! Quartz crystal is also 7 to 7.5. A diamond has a Mohs hardness of 10. This means: " Mohs hardness is the rough measure of the resistance of a smooth surface to scratching or abrasion, expressed in terms of a scale devised (1812) by the German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs. The Mohs hardness of a mineral is determined by observing whether its surface is scratched by a substance of known or defined hardness."

Each Amethyst cat is sold individually by size (small, medium, large) and the mineral features unique to each one. We'll give a lot of detail in each cat's description.
Powerful and beautiful Amethyst crystals boost the effectiveness of our Flower Essence Formulas For Cats and of Convivial House Cat. We recommend that you put drops of any of Convivial House Cat and/or Cat Faeries flower essences on them and place the carving on a dish near your catís favorite resting place or food bowl to boost the effectiveness and healing properties of these remedies.. All you need to do is place a few drops of either (or both) products on your crystal and it will beam the vibration to where you've directed it. So simple! Amethyst scattered in multiple places in your home will allow for healing on many levels, as well for absorbing negativity. They would be beneficial on your night table for good dreams, deep rest and cellular renewal. Cats love one tucked in their bed or along side their favorite napping places. One cannot have too much Amethyst in their home and around them! Detailed instructions accompany your order.
None of our crystals that we sell are ever heat treated or dyed, ever! They are completely natural. The deeper purple shades occur in nature from heat from the earth. In our opinion heating or dying stones would be like painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa, which is something we would never do!
