Amethyst is a beautiful, vibrant and decorative birthstone, highly valued for their violet colour and twinned crystal structure. It is a member of the Quartz family and was the favored stone of Catherine the Great. Amethyst is believed to ward off intoxication of the body and the mind. It has always considered a stone of great prosperity and cleansing. It brings wisdom, spiritual awareness and aids you in heeding the call of your divine intuition, this bling is a need, not a want!
The name Amethyst comes from Greek Legend. Artemis, the great Greek goddess saved a young girl, Amethystos, from Dionysus, the god of wine and drunken revelry. He had become enraged by mortals refusing his hospitality and vowed to punish the next one he came across. Artemis turned the girl into a pure white statue to protect her. Dionysus was so moved by the statue’s innocence, that in an act of contrition, he emptied his wine cup on top of it, dying it a deep purple. I’m absolutely enamored with legends and how they add such resonance to the perfect stones!
Amethyst is a celebrated stress reliever, helping to calm the mind and anxiety, leaving you lingering in light and serenity. While your spiritual self blossoms with an open aura, Amethyst also helps to balance out your endocrine glands bringing better hormone balance. It improves circulation, carrying oxygen to the brain and earns its reputation as the stone of clarity.
The Third Eye Chakra is where this beauty works her most magic.
