Amethyst is purple quartz. The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” It rules the 7th Chakra and connects us with the Universal.
Purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. It has always been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune, their water-god, and is the traditional birthstone of that month. It is the stone of St. Valentine and faithful love, and signifies ecclesiastical dignity as the Bishop’s Stone. It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity and spirituality, yet bears the logic of temperance and sobriety.
Emotionally, amethyst can help heal personal losses and grief. Amethyst has a gently sedative energy that promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. It also brings emotional stability and inner strength. Amethyst can help get rid of addictions (alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc.) and compulsive behaviors of all kinds.
Amethysts are different in quality: a non-transparent variety is considered a semi-precious stone in today’s classifications. While the deep and transparent variety has been called by the ancients a “Gem of Fire,” a Precious Stone worth, at times in history, as much as a Diamond.
