Amethyst Bathtub – made in Italy
Isn’t it gorgeous? Ok, maybe the gold filigree legs are a wee bit over the top, but still….I could learn to love them. And now you, yes YOU, can get one for yourself. How incredible is that?
Baldi of Florence, Italy, has made the ultimate luxury bathtub out of precious purple amethyst and accented with 24 karat gold plated legs. The amethyst bathtub retails for only $125,000!
The company also made a matching tumbler, lotion dispenser, and soap dish. Because they are very considerate and know that you would want these things in the bathroom to match your magnificent amethyst bathtub.
Don’t forget the accessories!
Because of its stunning beauty ancient Greeks and Romans used amethyst in several ways from beads in jewelry to amulets. These ancient civilizations placed a high value in this stone. Their belief was that the amethyst crystal meaning was synonymous with luxury (obviously the maker of this bathtub did too). As such, it was highlighted as part of their crowns, scepters and rings. Christian bishops wore amethyst jewelry in the form of a ring. It’s color was meant to symbolize royalty.
Amethyst healing properties are as plentiful as the stone itself. It is thought of mostly as a protective stone. As it is linked to the crown chakra, it is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts. This includes the negativity of stress and anxiety, which is why many meditate with amethyst so as to rid themselves of that darkness. Amethyst healing properties are especially useful in regards to work-related stress, because the stone is also associated with abundance; therefore relieving stress while emanating prosperity. The amethyst properties which facilitate intuition and communication can also be applied to increased work effectiveness. See? All good reasons to sit for an hour or so in a amethyst tub full of bubbles to clear out your chakras!
Thanks Energy Muse for the info on amethysts.
Dec. 2018 update – sadly, Baldi no longer carries the Amethyst Bathtub. Alas! My dreams dashed :(
However, they do have a gorgeous Quartz Crystal Bathtub that I have posted about right here.
