Amethyst

What Is It

Amethyst has been in use for centuries by many different cultures and for many different reasons, including in crystal jewellery such as the rings of Christian bishops to signify royalty and an allegiance to Christ.

The name itself comes from the Greek amethustos, which means “not intoxicated” and the Ancient Greeks believed it could help people keep sober. One Greek myth is the god Bacchus was angry one day and vowed to unleash tigers on the next person he saw. This poor soul happened to be Amethyst and as the tigers were about to set on her, she prayed to the goddess Diana for help. Diana turned Amethyst into a white crystal. Bacchus, feeling bad for that he had done, poured wine on the white crystal which gave it a purple hue.

Amethyst is used for dispelling negative thoughts, which calms one’s stress and anxiety and can even help if you are having nightmares. It is also used to help intuition and communication, to increase your effectiveness at work.

Who Needs It

People who are stressed, anxious about something, have a presentation at work or have a big decision to make. 

Where To Put It

For peaceful sleep on your bedside nightstand. For better communications in the living room. For clarity at work, in your pocket, briefcase or office desk.
