 Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification, cleansing one's energy field of negative influences and attachments, and creating a shield of spiritual light around the body. It acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attack, geopathic stress and unhealthy environments. It also has powerful transformative qualities, giving you the strength to make challenging decisions by connection to your intuition and higher wisdom.

History

Amethyst derives its name from the Greek word amethystos meaning "not drunk" or "not intoxicated' a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.

Geology

Amethyst is a variety of quartz (crystalline silicon dioxide) with a natural violet colour due to the presence of iron, other trace elements and irradiation. Amethyst crystallises in the triagonal system and is found in open caves. Mohs scale of hardness is a 7.
