Amethyst is a purple to deep, dark royal purple crystal that ranges from partially translucent to opaque. It is often found as clusters, points on a matrix, geodes and cathedrals, or short and stubby crystals. Amethyst has a very glassy shine and in clusters may have a sparkly appearance.

Amethyst is a powerful and protective crystal, and is a first choice of many metaphysicians and crystal lovers.

In ancient times, it was used to recover from both physical addictions as well as addictive relationships, and thus became known as the “stone of sobriety”.

A natural stress reliever, Amethyst encourages and supports inner strength.

The strong healing energy of Amethyst can transmute lower vibrations to higher frequencies, transforming negative energy to love energy.

Amethyst connects the physical plane with higher realm, making it a good choice when working with the Third Eye Chakra. Also, it provides a wonderful peaceful energy for meditations, and helps with developing intuition and psychic abilities.

Amethyst opens and activates the Crown Chakra, allowing easier access to the divine. When working with Amethyst, it can enhance spiritual awareness and spiritual wisdom, promoting a higher state of consciousness. Amethyst clears and repairs holes in the aura and draws in Divine energy, as well as aligning and fostering cooperation between the energy bodies.

Physically, Amethyst can help to alleviate headaches and migraines. It dispels nightmares and helps with insomnia. Amethyst can also reduce eyestrain, especially when working at a computer.

Over time Amethyst will fade in the sunlight so don't cleanse/clear using sunlight.

  Rarity : common? I prefer the term ''abundant''. Our Mother Earth has blessed us with so much of this not so semi precious stone in all manner of forms, each with it's own special qualities. We are all truly blessed, and when we express gratitude, we reveal our grace.  (Submitted by: ARIEL on December 09, 2016)
