A beautiful purple form of Quartz, Amethyst has been used in jewellery for centuries. I has an interesting history, the ancient Greeks believed it could prevent intoxication and Medieval Europeans used it in battle to keep them calm and focused. It was believed to have strong protective qualities.
We still use Amethyst for calming the emotions and reducing stress levels but it is also used for protection and to encourage insight. It is the stone that relates to the 7th chakra, Sahasra or the Crown chakra. As such it is used to connect us with the Universe and to induce higher states of consciousness.
Amethyst crystals are said to build ones strength to analyse emotions, meaning that this stone will help you in making important decisions and reading difficult situations. It is also said that Amethyst's can improve your listening skills, giving you the power to pass on your good decision making skills to others.
