Discover the Power and Beauty of Amethyst
Whether you love it for its gorgeous looks or amazing healing powers, it's hard to go past an amethyst. One of the most prized gems since time began an amethyst is actually a quartz crystal - it's the iron and other trace minerals it contains that give it that stunning purple glow.
Amethyst throughout History
From ancient Egyptian artefacts to the British crown jewels, amethysts have long been favoured by royalty and religious groups. Interestingly, it takes its name from the Ancient Greek word for 'not intoxicated'!
Throughout history, amethyst was believed to control evil thoughts, quicken intelligence, protect the wearer from disease or injury, and even put demons to flight. It encourages calm, bravery, and contemplation.
Uses for Amethyst Crystal
Amethyst is a healing stone. In traditional Chinese medicine, it was used to stop stomach pains and nightmares. In the Middle Ages, it was moistened with saliva and rubbed on the face to get rid of pimples. It is believed to help detoxify the body and treat the central nervous system.
If you are prone to headaches, wearing a pair of amethyst earrings will alleviate the pain, clarify your thinking and improve your memory. In much the same way as Fluorite, amethyst can be used on all levels, emotional, spiritual and physical.
Due to its unique qualities, amethyst is especially recommended to clear your home or office of negative energy. It produces a calm meditative environment where you are protected and in control. This is particularly useful in a household prone to arguments and confrontation.
By having amethyst around the home you will also strengthen your immune system - thus improving your overall health.
In Feng Shui, amethyst can be placed in the Southeast for wealth and abundance, or in the Northeast for spiritual growth. Placing a cluster in a child's bedroom can help promote study and learning.
Luvin Life Amethyst
If you're searching for interesting ways to use amethyst around the home, why not try an orgonite pyramid that contains amethyst? This would not only look amazing but would also give you the added protection of the orgonite.
The pyramids come in different sizes and should be placed in your living space, bedroom and next to any computers.
Alternatively, for personal healing and protection, carry a piece of amethyst in your pocket or wear an amethyst necklace or orgonite pendulum.
