Amethyst is a purple version of the quartz family. A powerful and popular stone for protection, serenity and calmness of the spiritual and physical body. In Greek, its name translates to “amethystos” which means “not intoxicated” making amethyst a wise choice for overcoming addictions. It is also known for enhancing spiritual awareness and expanding one to higher states of consciousness.
Amethyst is beneficial after a stressful day, moments of anxiety, fear, anger or sadness. Its high frequencies act as a shield to block negativity while purifying the energy field. It is also known for relieving insomnia and unpleasant dreams. Spiritually it enhances one’s connection with their Angels and Spirit Guides in order to develop intuition and gain clarity and wisdom.
Amethyst can be worn, carried or placed in the home to absorb negative energy while promoting tranquility. I personally keep a cluster by my front door to “catch” negative energy from any who enter. Amethyst is a go-to for helping to still the mind in order to expand into higher states of consciousness in meditation. Place under your pillow for a good night's sleep.
