Amethyst was carved by the ancient Egyptians, used by the Greeks to prevent intoxication and worn in battle by Europeans to keep a clear head, its purple hues represent royalty and spirituality. Amethyst has held many old world uses and is now used extensively by healers as an anti-stress sleep aid.
Amethyst is the gemstone variety of quartz, produced by the presence of manganese in clear quartz crystal. Increments of iron within the crystal as it formed vary the colour of the amethyst, which ranges from pale lilac to deep purple. Amethyst has been popular with royalty, sages, mystics and magicians for centuries.
Amethyst is said to enhance spirituality, raise the vibrational level of the holder, cleanse the astral, etheric and physical bodies, and produce a peaceful, tranquil state of mind. The colour violet is associated with the crown chakra, and so this extremely energetically 'bright' violet amethyst activates and energises the crown chakra, connecting the bearer to higher mind, higher realms and inner spiritual guidance from extremely elevated sources.
You can use amethyst as a spiritual purifier, a way to protect the etheric body from outer stresses, be they of a spiritual, mental, physical, personal or impersonal nature.
Amethyst is classically the stone of sobriety, purity and chastity and would be an excellent stone for those with tendencies toward addictive behavior, or for those spiritual seekers intent upon transformation through the progressive purification of mind, body and aura.
