Small Amethyst Crystal Clusters
Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek for not intoxicated, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and made drinking vessels decorated with it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. Cleopatra is said to have worn a ring made of Amethyst engraved with the image of Mithras, a Persian. It is one of several forms of quartz. Amethyst is a semiprecious stone and is the traditional birthstone for February. Amethyst was as expensive as ruby and emerald until the 19th Century, when Brazil’s large deposits were discovered. Today, as the most valued quartz variety, amethyst is in demand for designer pieces and mass-market jewelry alike, and its purple to pastel hues retain wide consumer appeal.
According to Metaphysics: Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. Some of the most well-known Amethyst uses are for spiritual practices, specifically deepening your connection to self and your ability to tap into your intuition. Besides facilitating your intuitive sense, the Amethyst metaphysical properties also helps you work toward inner peace and allows you to rest and relax when you need to most – before bed, during a stressful situation, or before you begin meditation.
