Amethyst Stone (actual stone shape may vary slightly from image shown)
Amethyst crystals are one of the world’s most popular gemstones and have been in use for thousands of years. The believed healing properties of the stone are rather impressive and trace back to ancient Greek beliefs. In fact, the word ‘amethyst’ comes from the Greek word amethystos, which means sober and alludes to the idea of maintaining a solid, sober mindset.
Amethyst is held in high regard in spiritual circles. It can control evil thoughts, initiate wisdom and increase intelligence through a greater sense of understanding. The stone can help you apply your intellectual powers in challenging situations and think more clearly to make better choices.
Over and above the physical properties and benefits of amethyst, the stone’s purple color is a natural tranquilizer. It is said to dispel rage, help manage fears and anger, and calm rage and anxiety.
Other believed benefits of amethyst include the ability to alleviate sadness and grief and dissolving negativity. The color of this gem is also connected to activating spiritual awareness, welcoming intuitive energies and enhancing one’s psychic abilities.
