Amethyst is a hexagonal crystal. The word amethyst comes from the Greek word amethystos, which means “not drunken”. In antiquity, Amethyst was thought to prevent intoxication. Medieval European soldiers often wore Amethyst for its healing properties.
Amethyst was once considered a precious gemstone like Emerald and Ruby, but since the discovery of enormous Amethyst deposits, the stone has become less expensive and more available.
Amethyst does indeed carry the benefits of healing. Its healing properties extend not only to the physical but mental and emotional. It inspires calm and presents an opportunity to heal in peace and tranquility.
Amethyst also opens the 3rd eye chakra, giving one clearer vision.
Leave your troubles, bruises, and bumps behind. Hold this gentle giver in your hand. Place it on your 3rd eye for a moment or so. Now hold it again in your hand and breathe in slowly and gently, with the rhythmic heartbeat of the Universe, which resides within you.
Do this internal process for as long as you like. I promise you will feel the healing quality of Mother Earth blended with the cosmic forces that created this glorious stone for us to use and enjoy.
