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.
Just make sure you regularly clean yours for best long term results, and please ensure that those crystals which are on you every day are cleansed regularly.
Amethyst crystals are exceptional for providing spiritual protection, inner strength and clarity of mind, making them a classic meditation tool. Meditating with them can help you to become more in tune with your feelings, helping you to get to know yourself on a much deeper level. It also stimulates the crown chakra and calms your thoughts, making it a powerful aid in meditation.

This month I am going to introduce you one of my personal favourites, pink quartz also known as the love stone. Rose Quartz is the most beneficial stone for self-love.
It has a very sweet, feminine and beautiful energy which is activating the heart chakra as well as the thymus chakra, which is also known as the higher heart chakra. It evokes unconditional love, joy, emotional healing and balance, compassion.
It is bringing emotions to the surface and at the same time is making you feel calm and strong enough to deal with everything coming your way. I used to give it as a present to many of my friends, maybe this could be inspiration for what to get this for Christmas for yourself or your precious ones.
You can place your stone anywhere you feel you should have it and it radiates out its loving and soothing energy into its surroundings.
As it is strongly resonating with Goddess Energy, it brings up love in many forms, for yourself, your partner, kids and for the whole world. It helps to dissolve anger and resentment and anxiety.
HOW TO USE IT?
During your daily meditation with crystals.
Also you can program it with specific affirmations. You can wear it as jewellery such as earrings, rings, pendants, necklaces or bracelets.
You can place it in the bedroom, or in any room where you would like the melodious and gentle energy to improve the ambience.
Rose quartz should be cleansed every 15 days with cold running water.
You can charge it next to an amethyst or ideally with the energy of the full moon outside or near the window so the moon can shine on it. Don’t put it in a place where there’s too much sunlight because it will affect the stone’s color and energy. This crystal is considered to be a moon stone therefore it is charged by the energy of the moon not of the sun.
