Amethyst

Amethyst, part of the quartz family, is a powerful and protective stone which is one of the most popular variety of quartz crystals. Formed from volcanic rock and lava, the deep purple colour of Amethyst has been sought after for years, dating back to the ancient Greeks, for its stunning purple hues and healing properties. Its prismatic crystals are another feature which draws the eye and makes the crystal stand out above others.  Amethyst has a long history and, in ancient times, was thought to be a very precious stone. Whereas nowadays it is viewed as a semi-precious crystal. The main use for the Amethyst crystal in modern times is for healing.  The main healing properties of this stone include:
  • Relieving anxiety and stress
  • Assisting with a good night's sleep and insomnia
  • Banishing negative energies
  • Enhancing willpower
  • Protecting against psychic attacks
This crystal is also said to enhance sobriety which helps not only people who may be intoxicated, but those who overindulge too. This can assist in deterring people from gaining an addiction. This goes hand in hand with the literal name of Amethyst which translates to “not intoxicated”.
