Amethyst is crystalline quartz in colours ranging from pale lilac to deep reddish purple. Amethyst derives its name from the Greek word ‘ametusthos’ which means ‘not intoxicated’. 

One folk tale provides the tale of Dionysus, the God of Intoxication, and a young beautiful maiden, named Amethystos, who refused his advances. Dionysus let loose fierce tigers while Amethystos was making her way to pray to the Goddess Diana. To  protect her from the advancing tigers, Diana turned Amethystos into a statue of pure crystalline Quartz. Astonished by what he had done to Amethystos, he cried the tears of wine in response. It is said that his tears changed the colourless quartz purple, forming Amethyst.

Why wear this stone?

Amethysts can help with the negative energies that surround you. They are also useful in regards to relieving stress and anxiety. People have worn amethysts for centuries to protect them from malevolent entities, spirits, or dangerous situations. Some who practice healing with crystals attribute the property of the amethyst to its ability to facilitate communication with the spiritual realm. Amethyst is strongly associated with the crown chakra and is said to connect the chasm between the physical and the spiritual realms.

For those who struggle with cutting down their drinking, Amethyst wants them to stay focused on sobriety.

Amethyst is known for its ability to calm the physical and psychological struggle with sleep.

It also works well with those who tend to become angry easily because it efficiently dissipates the accumulation of frustration and replaces it with a layer of calm that is hard to pierce through.

Who should wear this stone?

Any person can wear an amethyst gemstone and derive benefits from wearing it. Although amethyst is rumoured to bestow extraordinary joy and prosperity on those who are born in February, anyone can wear this stone to generate positivity and good fortune within their day-to-day life.
