Amethyst is probably the most well-known crystal. The beautiful hues of purple makes amethyst beautiful both polished (as jewellery or a tumble-stone) and rough. The name Amethyst is derived from the Greek word "amethystus" meaning not drunken, or intoxicated. Amethyst is actually purple quartz and is known as a meditative and calming stone. Placing an amethyst under your pillow is said to help with insomnia and protect against nightmares. Using an amethyst grid is supposed to help with headaches.
As Amethyst has a calming and sedative energy, which helps with meditation and focusing of the mind. Just be aware Amethyst fades in sunlight so only re-charge using water or moonlight. Finally, Amethyst is the birthstone for February and for Pisces. * What do you like about Amethyst? * Do you wear any crystals as jewellery pieces?
