This is another favourite crystal of mine.
I have it on my bedside table. It is a moon stone, it doesn't like the sun very much so if you want to avoid fading it, please keep it away from the sun. You can recharge it once a month in the light of the full moon.
Let's have a look at all of the amazing benefits and interesting information about this beautiful stone.
This crystal's name comes from the Greek word 'amethustos', meaning non-drunk. It is said that this stone helps to overcome addictions and one of the interesting facts about Amethyst crystals is that the ancient Greeks made cups from the purple stone because they believed that drinking from it could prevent you from becoming inebriated. It is historically believed to have been the ninth stone on the Breastplate of the High Priest of Israel. It is clear that these ancient people could feel the vibration of the lovely crystal energy that these purple stones emit.
For many centuries people have used these beautiful purple stones, as they believed, and perhaps intuitively recognized, that they had amazing healing powers. It has long been considered a gemstone of royalty, being used in the crowns, scepters and rings of bishops.
One of the beautiful geodes placed anywhere in your environment, is powerful enough to bring through a wonderful healing vibration. Amethyst's healing properties also include acting as a natural form of stress relief. This crystal attracts positive energy while ridding your body of any negative emotions—feelings of stress, anxiety, fear, depression and more. The healing properties of Amethyst help to clear your body’s energy field of all negative energies and influences, acting as an energetic shield that creates a bubble of spiritual light around your body. This quartz crystal may also help with healing sadness and grief, and will assist you to heal your inner child.
