Using black basalt rocks and earth from the site, the artist created a coil 1500 feet long and 15ft wide that stretches out counterclockwise into the translucent red water.

Never can one have enough Amethyst. A necessary stone for every healer or crystal lover, lately I’ve been deeply connecting with this violet beauty and feel the need to share and express this love. Here is some information I’ve picked up about this powerful healer.
Amethyst means ‘without drunkeness’ in greek, and has been used to instill soberity since ancient times. Amethyst aids in fighting against addiction of all kinds, calming overindulgences and supporting moderation and self-control. 
A stone of meditation, amethyst focuses and centers the mind and encourages deep meditation. Stimulating the third eye, this stone encourages psychic and spiritual journey. 
Amethyst stills overactive thought, being a natural sedative and thus is a good stone to combat insomnia. Place under your pillow or beside your bed to promote a deep sleep. Amethyst also brings about pleasant and often psychic dreams. 
Amethyst stimulates the third eye, crown and etheric chakras, developing psychic abilities and intuitive thought. 
A healing stone of the higher body, amethyst soothes headaches when stroked across the forehead. 
Amethyst provides protection from psychic attack, creating a shield of white light around the auric body and protecting the wearer from ill wishing. It cleanses the aura of negative influences and protects from energy leeching.
Glendalough is so marvellously magical and scenically beautiful
