Full of regal coloring, Amethyst is a stone of transformation and enlightenment. Treasured by countless generations of crystal lovers, Amethyst’s name comes from an Ancient Greek legend involving the playboy god Bacchus, a pure maiden named Amethyst, and too much wine… Taking legend to heart, ancient Greeks and Romans drank from Amethyst-studded goblets as a talisman against overindulgence and addiction. Today, Amethyst reminds us to always treat body and mind as a sacred temple. It helps us unplug from unhealthy attachments, and powerfully cleanses mind, body, and aura from negative or addictive patterns.
A stone of protection, Amethyst creates an ultraviolet bubble of protective light around people and spaces, and is very helpful for insomnia and nightmares. A stone of transcendence, Amethyst heightens psychic powers, and will strengthen your connection to all things mystical and magical. Amethyst is a truly miraculous crystal that blesses everyone and everything within its wide energy field.
