I just came back from my geology lab where we had to identify minerals. While the scientific part of geology isn't really my thing, appreciating a nice mineral is. Amethyst is one of my favorite stones and here is a little info on it...
Amethyst is essentially quartz with a purple hue. It is a stone of psychic awareness that has a calming and protective aura. It has been used to help with:
- attracting love and happiness.
- energizing your crown chakra
- psychic protection
- any kind of divination
- pain of arthritis or headache
- overcoming addiction
- treating insomnia and nightmares
- neutralizing negative energy
